quick review
Quick Review
  • Six categories based on shape
    • ____________ bones
      • Thin, roughly parallel surfaces
      • Examples: cranial bones, sternum
    • Sutural bones (Wormian bones)
      • Irregular bones formed between cranial bones
      • Number, size, and shape vary
    • ___________ bones
      • Relatively long and slender
      • Examples: various bones of the limbs

Six categories based on shape (continued)

    • Irregular bones
      • Complex shapes
      • Examples: vertebrae, bones of pelvis, facial bones
    • _______________ bones
      • Small, flat, and somewhat shaped like sesame seed
      • Develop in tendons of knee, hands, and feet
        • Individual variation in location and number
    • Short bones
      • Small and boxy
      • Examples: bones of the wrist (carpals) and ankles (tarsals)
functions of bone
Functions of Bone
  • Bones are important mineral reservoirs
    • Mostly _____________________________ but other ions as well
  • Calcium
    • Most abundant mineral in body
    • 1–2 kg (2–4 lb)
    • ~__________% deposited in skeleton
    • Variety of physiological functions
      • Concentration variation greater than 30–35% affects neuron and muscle function
      • Normal daily fluctuations are <10%

Levels controlled by activities of:

      • Intestines
        • Absorb calcium and phosphate under hormonal control
      • Bones
        • Remodeling by osteoblasts and osteoclasts
      • Kidneys
        • Calcium and phosphate loss in urine under hormonal control
  • As a calcium reserve, skeleton has primary role in calcium _________________________
  • Has direct effect on shape and length of bones
    • Release of calcium into blood weakens bones
    • Deposit of calcium salts strengthens bones

Factors that increase blood calcium levels

    • ____________________ hormone
    • Responses
        • Bones: stimulates osteoclasts to release calcium
        • Intestines: enhances calcitriol effects and increases calcium absorption
        • Kidneys: increase release of hormone calcitriol, which causes calcium reabsorption in kidneys

Factors that decrease blood calcium levels

    • ___________________
      • Responses
        • Bone: decrease osteoclast activity
        • Intestines: decreased absorption with decreasing PTH and calcitriol
        • Kidneys: inhibits calcitriol release and calcium reabsorption

Long bone features

    • ______________________ (expanded ends)
      • Consist largely of _________________ bone (trabecular bone)
        • Network of struts and plates
        • Resists forces from various directions and directs body weight to diaphysis and joints
      • Outer covering of ______________________ bone
        • Strong, organized bone
      • Articular _________________________
        • Covers portions of epiphysis that form articulations
        • Avascular and receives resources from synovial fluid

Long bone features (continued)

    • _____________________________ (connects epiphysis to shaft)
    • ______________________ (shaft)
      • Contains medullary cavity (marrow cavity)
        • Filled with marrow
          • Red bone marrow (red blood cell production)
          • Yellow bone marrow (adipose storage)

Coronal sections through a right femur, showing the boundaries of a long bone’s major

regions, plus the bone’s internal organization and how it distributes the forces applied

to the bone

The epiphysis consists

largely of spongy bone,

also called trabecular

bone. Spongy bone

consists of an open network

of struts and plates that

resembles latticework with

a thin covering, or cortex, of

compact bone.

Body weight

(applied force)

The epiphysis

(e-PIF-i-sis) is an

expanded area

found at each end

of the bone.

The metaphysis

(me-TAF-i-sis; meta,

between) is a narrow

zone that connects

the epiphysis to the

shaft of the bone.

The wall of the diaphysis

consists of a layer of

compact bone.


on lateral

side of


The medullary cavity

(medulla, innermost part), or

marrow cavity, is a space

within the hollow shaft. In

life, it is filled with bone

marrow, a highly vascular

tissue. Red bone marrow

is highly vascular and

involved in the production

of blood cells. Yellow

bone marrow is adipose

tissue important in the

storage of energy reserves.

The diaphysis

(shaft) is long and



on medial

side of shaft

Figure 6.2 3

A longitudinal section of the humerus, showing the extensive|network of blood vessels in long bones

An articular cartilage covers portions ofthe epiphysis that articulate with other bones. The cartilage is avascular, and itrelies primarily on diffusion from thesynovial fluid to obtain oxygen andnutrients and eliminate wastes.

Epiphyseal arteryand vein

The metaphyseal artery (red) andmetaphyseal vein (blue) carry blood toand from the area of the metaphysis and tothe epiphysis through epiphyseal arteriesand veins.


Most bones have only onenutrient artery (shown inred) and one nutrient vein(shown in blue), but a fewbones, including the femur,have more than one of each.




A nutrient foramen is a tunnel that penetrates thediaphysis and providesaccess for the nutrient arteryand/or vein. Branches ofthese large vessels supplythe osteons of thesurrounding compact bonebefore entering andsupplying the tissues of themedullary cavity.

Metaphysealartery and vein



Bone vasculature

    • Growth and maintenance requires extensive _______________________ supply
    • Vascular features
      • Nutrient artery/vein (commonly one each/bone)
        • Nutrient __________________(tunnel providing access to marrow cavity)
        • Also supplies osteons of compact bone with blood
      • Metaphyseal artery/vein
        • Carry blood to/from metaphysis
        • Connects to epiphyseal arteries/veins

_____________________ features

    • Smaller blood vessels (supply superficial osteons)
    • Lymphatic vessels (collect lymph from bone and osteons)
    • ____________________ nerves (innervate diaphysis, medullary cavity, and epiphyses)
bone cells
Bone cells
  • Four bone cell types
    • __________________________ (osteo-, bone + cyte, cell)
      • Mature bone cells that cannot divide
      • Most numerous bone cell type
      • Maintain protein and mineral content of adjacent matrix
        • Dissolve matrix to release minerals
        • Rebuild matrix to deposit mineral crystals
      • Occupy ____________________(pocket)
        • Separated by layers of matrix (lamellae)
        • Connected with canaliculi

______________________ (blast, precursor)

    • Produce new bony matrix (osteogenesisor ossification)
      • Begins with release of proteins and other organic components to produce unmineralized matrix (= osteoid)
      • Then assists in depositing calcium salts to convert osteoid to bone
    • Become osteocytes once surrounded by bony matrix
figure 6 3 1 2
Figure 6.3 1 - 2

The structures of osteocytes and osteoblasts within a

long bone

The layers of matrix

are called lamellae

(lah-MEL-lē; singular,

lamella, a thin plate).

Narrow passageways

called canaliculi

penetrate the lamellae,

radiating through the

matrix and connecting

lacunae to one another

and to various blood

vessels that supply


Osteocytes account for most

of the cell population in bone.

Each osteocyte occupies a

lacuna, a pocket sandwiched

between layers of matrix.

Osteocytes cannot divide,

and a lacuna never containsmore than one osteocyte.

    • Mesenchymal (stem) cells that produce cells that differentiate into osteoblasts
    • Important in fracture repair
    • Locations

The osteocytes occupy lacunae that lie

between the lamellae. In preparing this

micrograph, a small piece of bone was

ground down until it was thin enough to

transmit light. In this process, the lacunae

and canaliculi are filled with bone dust, and

thus appear black.
