What is Bone?

is a hard connective tissue. The entire framework of bone and their cartilage constitute the skeletal system.

Bone is composed of

  • Hydroxyapatite
  • Collagen
  • Water (H2O)
Bone Cells

There are four types of cell in bone tissue:
  • Osteogenic cells:
    They are precursor of connective tissue.
  • Osteoblast:
    They are responsible for bone formation.
  • Osteocyte:
    Maintain the cellular activities in bone tissue.
  • Osteoclast:
    Found on bone surface and function in resorption.

What is Bone Remodeling?

Bone is continuously renewed through a process called remodeling. This process consists of bone resorption and bone formation. In bone resorption, old bone tissue is broken down and removed by osteoclasts cells. During bone formation, new bone tissue is laid down to replace the old tissue by osteoblasts cells. Osteoclast and osteoblast function is regulated by some hormones like calcitonin, parathyroid hormone, vitamin D, estrogen (in women) and testosterone (in men).
