  1. ____________ bones

  • Complicated shapes

  • Vertebrae and hip bones



6.4 Bone Structure

  • Bones are organs because they contain different types of tissues

  • Bone (______________) tissue predominates, but a bone also has nervous tissue, cartilage, fibrous connective tissue, muscle cells, and epithelial cells in its blood vessels


Gross Anatomy

  • _________________ and __________________ bone

  • Compact bone: dense outer layer on every bone that appears smooth and solid

  • Spongy bone: made up of a honeycomb of small, needle-like or flat pieces of bone called ________________ – lattice or scafolding

  • Open spaces between trabeculae are filled with red or yellow bone marrow


  • Structure of short, irregular, and flat bones

  • Consist of thin plates of spongy bone (diploe) covered by compact bone

  • Compact bone ______________________________________

  • _______________ covers outside of compact bone, and ________________ covers inside portion of compact bone

  • Bone marrow is scattered throughout spongy bone





Gross Anatomy (cont.)

  • Structure of typical long bone

  • All long bones have a shaft (diaphysis), bone ends (epiphyses), and membranes

  • Consists of compact bone surrounding central medullary cavity; filled with yellow marrow
  • _________________: ends of long bones that consist of compact bone externally and spongy bone internally

  • Articular cartilage (Hyaline) covers articular (___________) surfaces
  • Between diaphysis and epiphysis is epiphyseal __________

  • Remnant of childhood epiphyseal ________ where ______________ occurs


  • Membranes: two types (periosteum and endosteum)

  • ___________________: white, double-layered membrane that covers external surfaces except joints
  • Contains many nerve fibers and blood vessels that continue on to the shaft through nutrient ___________________ openings
  • ________________ points for tendons and ligaments


  • ____________________
  • ____________ trabeculae of spongy bone
  • Lines canals that pass through __________________ bone


  • Hematopoietic tissue in bones

  • _______________ is found within trabecular cavities of spongy bone such as sternum

  • In adults, red marrow is located in heads of femur and humerus, but most active areas of hematopoiesis are flat bone diploë and some irregular bones (such as the hip bone)

  • Yellow marrow can convert to red, if person becomes anemic


  • Bone markings

  • Sites of muscle, ligament, and tendon __________________ on external surfaces

  • Areas involved in joint formation or ______________ for blood vessels and nerves

  • Three types of markings:

  • ______________: outward bulge of bone

  • May be due to increased __________ from muscle pull or is a modification for joints
  • ______________: bowl- or groove-like cut-out that can serve as passageways for vessels and nerves, or plays a role in joints

  • ______________: hole or canal in bone that serves as passageways for blood vessels and nerves






Microscopic Anatomy of Bone

  • Cells of bone tissue

  • Five major cell types, each of which is a specialized form of the same basic cell type

  1. Osteogenic cells

  2. Osteoblasts

  3. Osteocytes

  4. Bone-lining cells

  5. Osteoclasts


  1. Osteogenic cells

  • Mitotically active ________________ in periosteum and endosteum

  • When stimulated, they differentiate into osteoblasts or bone-lining cells


  1. Osteoblasts

  • Bone-forming cells that _______________________ bone matrix called osteoid

  • Osteoid is made up of collagen and calcium-binding proteins

  • Collagen makes up _____% of bone protein

  • Osteoblasts are actively _____________


  1. Osteocytes

  • _______________ bone cells in lacunae that no longer divide

  • Maintain bone matrix and act as __________________ sensors

  • Respond to ______________________ stimuli such as increased force on bone or weightlessness

  • ___________________ information to osteoblasts and osteoclasts (cells that destroy bone) so bone ________________ can occur


  1. Bone-lining cells

  • Flat cells on bone surfaces believed to also help maintain matrix


  1. Osteoclasts

  • Derived from same hematopoietic stem cells that become _____________________
