4 HISTOLOGY OF BONE Bone consists of widely separated cells surrounded by large amounts of matrix Four principal types of cells: 1. osteoprogenitor cells - unspecialized can divide 2. osteoblasts - form bone, secrete collagen 3. osteocytes – former osteoblasts, strain sensors that detect stress in the bone and talk to osteoblasts on the bone surface 4. osteoclasts - reabsorb bone

5 BONE HISTOLOGY (cont.) Matrix contains some calcium carbonate, calcium phosphate but mostly hydroxyapatite , which is the PRIMARY salt that makes bone hard. Matrix is deposited in a framework of collagen fibers, - calcification or mineralization salts confer hardness on bone collagen fibers give tensile strength Matrix (Bone) composition = 25% water, 25% protein fibers and 50% minerals
