Study Notes

Bone Cells

  • Osteoprogenitor cells have the ability to differentiate into osteoblasts, which then form new bone tissue.


  • Osteocytes are mature bone cells embedded in the bone matrix, responsible for maintaining bone tissue.


  • Osteoclasts are large, multinucleated cells that break down and resorb bone tissue, found in the periosteum and endosteum of bones.


  • The main function of osteoblasts is to produce bone matrix, which is composed of collagen fibers and minerals, and to deposit it onto the surface of bones.

Compact Bone Structure

  • Compact bone is composed of cylindrical units called osteons, which consist of concentric layers of bone matrix surrounding a central canal.
