5 Matching Questions

  1. canaliculi
  2. interstitial growth
  3. Functions of bone (5)
  4. endochondral ossification 2/2
  5. osteoblasts & osteoclast & calcium
  1. a growth in length
  2. b 1. Secondary ossification centers and marrow cavities form in ends of bone
    2. Cartilage remains as articular cartilage and epiphyseal (growth) plates
    a. Growth plates provide for increase in length of bone during childhood and adolescence
    b. Disappear when growth stops
  3. c like like little cracks, actually canals
  4. d 1. during bone formation osteoblasts remove calcium from blood, lowering its circulating levels
    2. when osteoclasts are active and breakdown of bone predominates, calcium is released into blood & circulating levels will increase.
  5. e to make RBCs
    1. Support (ex. to stand up)
    2. Protection (ex. cover vital organs)
    3. Movement - muscles covers - movement
    4. Mineral storage - calcium, 98% of calcium is stored in bone. (too much calc. in blood, then store in bones - like a bank, can add to bank until 30-35)
    5. Hematopoiesis (blood formation) - formation of blood cells, RBC, WBC, Platelets

    can't live w/o calc.

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. curvature of the spine
  2. high blood calcium levels results in stimulation of osteoblasts and inhibit osteoclasts
  3. 1. Bones grow in length at epiphyseal plate
    2. Bones grow in diameter by the combined action of osteoclasts and osteoblasts
    3. Osteoclasts enlarge the diameter of the medullary cavity
    4. Osteoblasts from the periosteum build new bone around the outside of the bone
    5. Bone formation = bone destruction in early to middle years
    6. Remodeling activity important in homeostasis of blood calcium levels.
    7. Remodeling occurs throughout life

    women stop growing around the time of the start of their period, in case they get pregnant. don't want to compete w/baby for calcium.
    males have denser bones
  4. 1. Normally 8 - 12 weeks (longer in elderly)
    2. Stages of healing
    a. Fracture hematoma - clot forms, then osteogenic cells form granulation tissue
    b. Soft callus
    i. Fibroblasts produce fibers and fibrocartilage
    c. Hard callus
    i. Osteoblasts produce a bony collar in 6 weeks
    d. Remodeling in 3 to 4 months
    i. spongy bone replaced by compact bone
  5. growth in diameter

5 True/False Questions

  1. osteoclasts stimulatesosteoclasts, if the level of calcium in the blood is low & vitamin D systhesis (which increases the efficiency of absorption of calcium in the intestines)

          

  2. bone tissueconnective tissue
    1. Matrix dominates (calcium, calcium phosphate, sodium...)
    2. Inorganic salt - hydroxyapatite
    calcium phosphate (gives bones hardness)
    3. Organic matrix - protein fibers = gives you flexibility

    Note 1: need both organic and inorganic btw cells.
    Note 2: if calcium phosphate is the only thing in the bones then brittle bones and they shattered.
    Note 3: is only organic then osteoporosis

          

  3. Volkmann's or perforating canalsmainly blood vessels. connect central canals (ex. if one central canal gets clogged then get from here)

          

  4. structure of the osteon (3 & 5 components)1. during bone formation osteoblasts remove calcium from blood, lowering its circulating levels
    2. when osteoclasts are active and breakdown of bone predominates, calcium is released into blood & circulating levels will increase.

          

  5. peribone marrow
