3. Short Bone
4. Irregular Bone
5. Sutural Bone - minor
6. Sesamoid Bone - minor
Flat Bones
Are thin and flattened bones. They possess a broad flat surface for muscle attachment or protection of underlying organs.

Include: sternum, ribs, scapula and certain skull bones.
Long Bones
Longer than wide. Have a shaft and bulbus ends

Include: Humerus, clavicle, Radius, Ulna, femur, tibia, fibula, metacarpals, metatarsals, and phalanges.

Long portion = Diaphysis,
Widens = Metaphysis,
End = Epiphysis.
Elongated shaft of a long bone.
Flared portion of a long bone, between the diaphysis (shaft) of the bone and the epiphyseal plate at the end of the bone.
End of a long bone.
Short Bones
Cubed-shaped. Nearly in length and width. Texture is spongy except for the thin layer of compact bone at the surface. Found in wrist and ankle
Irregular Bones
Do not fit into any of the other bone categories, made up of both spongy and compact bone. Complicated shapes.
Sutural Bones
Small irregular bones located in sutures between certain cranial bones.
Wormian Bones
small flat, irregularly shaped bones between the flat bones of the skull. Borders are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, range in size from a grain of sand to a quarter.
Sesamoid Bone
Generally small, flat, and shaped somewhat like a sesame seed. They develop inside tendons, located near joints at the knees, hands, and the feet.
5 Functions of Skeletal System
1. provide shape & support
2. enable movement
3. protect internal organs
4. produces blood cells
5. stores certain materials until body needs them (fats, calcium)
3 Types of Skeletal Cartilage
hyaline, elastic, fibrocartilage
Hyaline Cartilage
Forms the larynx, the costal cartilages of the ribs, and the embryonic skeleton, firm, structurally amorphous matrix heavily invaded with fibers; appears glassy and smooth.
Elastic Cartilage
Cartilage with abundant elastic fibers; more flexible than hyaline cartilage., Found in ear, epiglottis, Eustachian tube, eu-nose.
A weight-bearing cartilage that withstands compression; forms the intervertebral discs, the pubic symphysis & cartilage pads of the knee joints (menisci).
Spongy Bone
Layer of bone tissue having many small spaces and found just inside the layer of compact bone.
Compact Bone
Hard, dense bone tissue that is beneath the outer membrane of a bone.
Epiphyseal Plate
Growth plate, made of cartilage, gradually ossifies.
Cartilage is replaced by bone through a process called:
Epiphyseal Line
The cartilage present at the junction of the diaphysis and epiphyses; a remnant of the epiphyseal plate.
Yellow Marrow
Found mostly at the end of bones in adults, it is made mainly of fat.
Red Marrow
Typically found within the trubecular cavities of spongy bone of long bones and in the dipole of flat bones.
Dense irregular connective tissue that lines the medullary cavities of long bones.
Articular Cartilage
Covers end of bones to prevent friction.
A dense fibrous membrane covering the surface of bones (except at their extremities) and serving as an attachment for tendons and muscles.
Meduliary Cavity
marrow cavity w/in diaphysis of long bones.
Perforating Fibers
- collagen fibers connect with fibers of bone, joint capsules, attached tendons, and ligaments
Nutrient Arteries
Single or few large arteries; enter at mid-diaphysis into medullary cavity; supply inner compact and spongy bone.
Axial Skeleton
Portion of the skeletal system that consists of the skull, rib cage, and vertebral column.
Appendicular Skeleton
Bones of the limbs and limb girdles that are attached to the axial skeleton; Extremeities; shoulder girdle, arm bones, pelvic girdle, and leg bones.

Chondrocytes - maintain cartilage tissue. Live in the Lacuna
Describe the embryonic skeleton formation.
Made from Fibrous Connective Tissue Membranes - minimal.

And Hyaline Cartilage which makes most of the bones in the body from a template of Hyaline

Cartilage then differentiates into endochondral bone.
Describe the process leading to Endochondral Bone
1. Most bone is developed from a cartilage model.

2. Pariocardium becomes vascularaized to a greater degree

3. Cartilage Matrix is calcified and chondrocytes die. Osteoblast form collar of bone on the calcified cartilage matrix.

4. Osteoblast build an outer surface of compact bone beneath the periosteum forming cavity.

5. Primary ossification centers form in the Diaphysis during fetal development.

6. Osetoclast remove the cancellous bone from the shaft interior, leaving marrow cavity that houses fat.
Osteochondral progenitor cell
Embryonic cells cluster where bone will eventually form, then become ____________________ and then chondrocytes. These cells produce a hyaline cartilage model surrounded by perichondrium, except where joints form.
Formation of Embryonic Skeletal System
1. Hyaline cartialge skeleton is formbed by 6-8 weeks. The head is formed by intrmebranous ossification and the body is formed by endochondral occifiation.
A. Intramembranous:
1. Mesenchymal stem cells in a fibrous membrane undergo ossificaiton forming th eflat bones iof the cranium, mandible and clavicles.
2. Blood vessels grow into area to supply osteoblasts with nutrients.
3. Bone tissue forms trapping blood vessels inside bone and ossification proceeds.
4. spongy bone developes first then compact bone develops as spongy bone remodels.
b. Endochondral Occification of skeletal bones of the fetus.
1. Chondrocytes in perichondrium differentiate into osteoblasts. Turning Parichondrium into periosteum.
2. Chondrocytes in the center of the bone die forming the medullary cavities.
3. Osteoprogenitor cells move in and differentiate osteo cells.
4. Vascularzation
5. Remodeling Creates Marrow Cavity
6. The epiphysess fills with spongy bone.
What is Membrane Bone
bone developed from fibrous membranes in a process called intramembranous ossification
Steps of Endochondral Ossification
1. Most bones develop from a carilage model
2. The cartilage matrix is calcified and chondrocytes die
3. Osteoprogenirator cells move in and start to differentiate.
4. Blood vessles enter developing bone bringing nutrients
5. Osteoblast build an outer surface of compact bone
6. Primary ossification centers form marrow cavity
7. Cartilage starts to ossify to form skeletal bones.

Also called mineralization: the process of deposition of mineral salts such as calcium and magnesium phosphates into a tissue. Different from Ossification.
Intramembranous ossification
Formation of flat bones of the cranium and mandible during embryonic development - 6-8 weeks.
When does endochondral ossification occur?
During 6-8 weeks of embryonic development. It is the fomation of body bones by Hyaline Cartilage.
Interstitial growth of long bones.
Growth from inside long bones. Chondrocytes (round cells, found internally) divide and secrete new matrix,expanding cartilage from within, making the cartilage longer.
Appositional Growth of long bones.
Growth from outside....cartilage forming cells ( from the surrounding perichondrium that secrete a new matrix against the external face of existing cartilage, building onto exisisting cartilage making cartilage thicker . Similar to how trees grow.
Dense irregular connective tissue membrane covering cartilage
Bone Remodeling Process
1. Osteoclasts release H ions into interstitail fluid.
2. H ions attract chloride ions to for HCl
3. HCl dissolves calcium salts (bone ground substance)
4. Plays role in Ca++ regulation in body fluids and bones.
Calcium Homeostasis
Maintained by opposite effects of Calcitonin (takes calcium out of the blood) and Parathyroid Hormone/PHT (putting calcium back in the bone)
Abnormally high concentrations of calcium circulating in the blood instead of being stored in the bones.
A condition characterized by an abnormally low concentration of calcium in the blood.
What is the body's response to Hypercalcemia?
The thyroid releases calciton into the blood stream and send a signal to the kidney's to release expel calcium thus reducing calcium in the blood. Also triggers digestive track to absorb more calcium.
What is the body's response to Hypocalcemia?
The parathyroid realeases PTH (parathyroid hormone) to increase calcium in the blood. This is done through stimulation of osteoclasts to release calcium from the bone.
Form of Vitamin D. that acts like a hormone is activated by the kidneys and increases calcium uptake from the gut.
Functions of Calcitrio
1. Stimulates resorption of calcium and phosporus from bone
2. Some inhibition of ca++ loss in urine from the kidneys
3. Stimulates calcium and phosphorus absorption in the small intestine.
What is the importance of Calcium & Phosporus in the body?
Calcium: Muscle contraction, Nerve impulsees, bone matrix, blood clotting
Phosphorus: ATP, Phospholipids, bone matrix

Needs Vitamin D to help body absorb Ca & P.
