• basic functional unit of compact bone is the osteon: layers of osseous tissue around the Haversian canal • osteocytes are found in the lacunae, sandwiched between layers of osseous tissue • perforating canals enter the bone • lacunae of a osteon are connected by small canaliculicompact bone• lack blood vessels • matrix forms trabeculae • nutrients reach cells through canaliculi that open onto the surface of the trabeculaespongy bonea connective tissue that is composed of specialized cells in a mineralized matrixbone• protein fibers: collagen • hydroxyapatite: inorganic component of matrix; deposits of calcium phosphate crystalsmakes up matrixosteochondral progenitor cellsstem cellscartilage comes in three types, what are they?hyaline, fibrocartilage, elastic cartilageperichondriumdouble layered connective tissue sheath covering most cartilagearticular cartilagehylaine cartilage, covers the ends of bones where they come together to form joints.chondroblastscartilage producing cellchondrocytesmature cartilage celldiaphysisshaft of the bone. consists of compact bone surrounding marrow cavityepiphysispart of the bone that develops from the center of ossification distinct from the diaphysis, end of bone-filled with spongy boneperiosteumsuperficial layer of bone, isolates bone from surrounding tissue, actively participates in bone growth(where bones grow in diameter)yellow marrowfat storage; in medullary cavity or in spaces of spongy bonered marrowconnective tissue in the spaces of spongy bone or in medullary cavity: site of hemopoises(blood cell procution)endosteumlines the marrow cavity active during bone growth or repair (inner cavities of bone)epiphyseal platearea of hyaline cartilage btwn the diaphysis and epiphysis: cartilage growth followed endochondral ossification results in growth in bone lengthepiphyseal linewhen bone stops growing in length the epiphyseal plate becomes ossified and is called thiswhen does bone development begin8 weeks after conception and continues through adolescencesintramembranous ossificationdermal ossification; osseous tissue develops from mesenchymal tissueendochondrial ossificationosseous tissue replaces existing cartilage modelprocess of intramembraneous ossification1. Mesenchymal cells cluster together and begin to secrete the organic components of the matrix. 2. Mesenchymal cells differentiate into osteoblasts. Some become trapped in bony pockets and mature into osteocytes. 3. Bone grows outward in small projections. Interconnection of projections traps blood vessels. 4. Mesenchymal cells divide and produce more osteoblasts. 5. Remodeling around blood vessels forms osteons. 6. Fibrous connective tissue around the bone becomes organized into periosteum.process of endochondrial ossification1. Cartilage enlarges reducing the matrix to thin struts. 2. Matrix becomes calcified, cutting off nutrients to the chondrocytes. 3. Chondrocytes die. 4. Blood vessels grow into the perichondrium. 5. Inner layer of the perichondrium is converted to periosteum 6. Thin layer of bone develops surrounding the shaft of the bone. 7. Blood supply to periosteum increases. Blood vessels enter the shaft of the bone providing a passageway for fibroblasts. 8. Calcified cartilaginous matrix breaks down. 9. Fibroblasts differentiate into osteoblasts and replace cartilaginous matrix with spongy bone. 10. Osteoclasts erode the spongy bone to form marrow cavity.how bones continue to grow in length• Ossification moves away from the center of the diaphysis • At the junction between the diaphysis and epiphysis: epiphyseal plate-composed of cartilage • More cartilage is produced on the epiphyseal side of the epiphyseal plate as ossification occurs on the diaphysis side • As long as the rate of new cartilage production = the rate of ossification, the bone will grow in length. • At puberty, rising levels of sex hormones, growth hormones and thyroid hormones increases the rate of ossification. • When the epiphyseal plate is reduced to a line, growth in length will stophow bones continue in diameterby appositional growth, growth at outer surface.factors affecting bone growth• calcium and phosphate • vitamin D • vitamin C • vitamins A, K and B12 • hormoneswhat is the most abundant ion in the body?calcium. (99% stored in bones)calcium ions is regulated by the interaction of what three ares?bones, intestines, kidneys.Calcium ion homeostasis is regulated bya negative feedback system involving two hormones with opposing effects:parathyroid hormone and calcitoninreleased by the parathyroid when levels of calcium are low; stimulates osteoclast activity, indirectly increases rate absorption at the intestines, decrease rate of excretion at kidneys• Parathyroid Hormone (PTH):released by the thyroid when calcium levels are high; inhibits osteoclasts activity, increase rate of excretion at kidneyscalcitonin4 components of skeletal systembomes, cartilage, tendons, and ligamentsligamentsstrong bands of fibrous connective tissue that attach to bones and hold them togethertendonsstrong bands of connective tissue, attach skeletal muscles to boneslong bonestype of bone that is longer than they are wide. most upper arm and lower limbs are long bones.flat bonestype of bone that is relatively thin, flattened shape and are usually curved.
