Histology Osteocytes= osteoblasts that become ‘trapped’ in matrix, osteoblasts housed in lucanae which are connected to each other by canaliculi canaliculi • Gap junctions allow for cells to communicate/diffuse Gap nuts/wastes nuts/wastes • Serve as strain sensors detecting deformation…pass info to Serve strain osteoblasts &/or osteoclasts @ bone surface osteoblasts Osteoclasts= bone-dissolving cells @ surface • Form from same marrow cells that produce monocytes; Form several cells fuse to form osteoclast (= large cell w/ 3-4 nuclei) nuclei) • Ruffled border of plasma membrane inc surface area • Reside in pits called resorption bays Reside resorption Histology (cont.)
