Functions of the Skeletal System Support Protection Movement – muscle attachment Blood formation – bone marrow RBCs/WBCs Mineral reservoir pH balance – buffers blood by absorbing or releasing alkaline salts Detoxification – removes heavy metals from blood; can later slowly release

Structure of a Flat Bone External and internal surfaces of flat bone are composed of compact bone Middle layer is spongy bone (Diploe No marrow cavity Blow to the skull may fracture outer layer and crush diploe, but not harm inner compact bone

General Features of Bones Shaft (diaphysis) cylinder of compact bone contains marrow cavity (medullary cavity) lined with endosteum (cells providing bone resorption & deposition) Enlarged ends (epiphyses) spongy bone covered with a layer of compact bone enlarged to strengthen joint & provide for attachment of tendons and ligaments Remainder of bone covered with periosteum outer fibrous layer continuous with tendons Epiphyseal plate or line depends on age

Cells of Osseous Tissue Osteogenic reside in endosteum or periosteum Osteoblasts form organic matter of matrix & help to mineralize it in response to stress or fractures Osteocytes are osteoblasts that have become trapped reside in lacunae by are connected to each other via caniculi signal osteoclasts & osteoblasts about mechanical stresses

Cells of Osseous Tissue Osteoclasts – bone-dissolving cells develop in bone marrow by the fusion of the same stem cells that give rise to monocytes of the blood Reside in pits called resorption bays that they have eaten into the surface of the bone
