Bones & Skeletal (Osseous) Tissues
Functions of Bones Support – hard framework that supports body & cradles soft organs Protection – fused bones of skull, vertebrae, rib cage Movement – skeletal muscles use bones as levers Mineral Storage – calcium & phosphate Blood Cell Formation (hematopoiesis) – RBC & WBC forms within red marrow cavities of certain bones
Classification of Bones All bones contain external compact bone & internal spongy bone filled with red or yellow bone marrow
Classification of Bones Classified according to shape: – Long Bones – has a shaft & 2 ends; made mostly of compact bone but may contain spongy bone in its interior Ex. Femur, tibia, fibula, humerus, fingers of hand – Short Bones – cube-like & contain mostly spongy bone; compact bone provides thin surface layer Ex. Bones of carpus (wrist) & tarsus (ankle) – Flat Bones – thin, flattened & usually a bit curved; have 2 relatively parallel compact bone surfaces Ex. Sternum, ribs, skull – Irregular Bones – bones that do not fit above classification Ex. Vertebrae & os coxa (pelvis) – Sutural Bones – small, flat, irregular shaped bones of skull – Sesamoid Bones – small, flat, shaped like sesame seed; develop in tendons located near joints Ex. Knee cap
Why is Bone considered an Organ? Bones are organs (organ level of organization) because they contain different types of tissue – Osseous – Nervous – Blood – Cartilage
Anatomy of Long Bones Diaphysis (shaft) – composed of a thick collar of compact bone that surrounds a central medullary cavity (marrow cavity) – “dia” – passing through Epiphyses – bone ends – Exterior made up of compact bone – Interior is spongy bone Why are the exterior & interior regions of the epiphyses structured this way? – Joint surface of each epiphysis is covered with thin layer of articular cartilage (cushion) – “epi” – on top of
Anatomy of Long Bones Periosteum – outer surface of diaphysis – Richly supplied with nerve fibers & blood vessels Endosteum – a delicate covering of internal bone structures – Why are there 2 wrappings found within long bone structure?
Anatomy of Short, Irregular & Flat Bones Thin plates of periosteum- covered compact bone on outside Endosteum- covered spongy bone (called diploe in flat bones) on inside
Hematopoetic Tissue in Bones Hematopoeisis: formation of blood cells – “hema” – blood – “poiesis” – production or formation of Infants – Medullary cavity & all spongy bone contain red marrow Adults – Diaphysis is usually filled with fatty (adipose) yellow marrow – Majority of hematopoiesis in long bones occurs in head of the femur & humerus Most important blood production occurs in diploe of flat bones (sternum) & in some irregular bones (hip bone)
Bone Histology Now what level of organization are we talking about? Bone contains specialized cells & a solid, sturdy matrix (calcium salts deposited around collagen protein fibers) Osteocytes: mature bone cells that occupy a lacuna – “osteo” – bone – “cyte” - cell
Bone Histology Bone cells are arranged in cylindrical patterns throughout bone around thin tubes called Haversian canals that contain nerves & blood vessels that nourish the osteocytes. Tiny cytoplasmic extensions called canaliculi connect the osteocytes to one another & the Haversian canals.
Functions of Osteocytes Maintain the protein & mineral content of the matrix – Secrete chemicals that dissolve old matrix & then stimulate the depositing of calcium crystals Assist in the repair of damaged bone – If released from lacunae, osteocytes can become an osteoblast or an osteoprogenitor cell
Osteoblasts Perform osteogenesis – Make & release proteins & other parts of matrix – Before calcium salts are deposited the matrix is called osteoid – Osteoblasts elevate the level of calcium salts in matrix, thus converting osteoid to bone Osteo- progenitor Cells Stem cells that undergo mitosis, producing daughter cells that differentiate into osteoblasts – Aid in repair of bone fractures – Located in the endosteum (which lines marrow cavities)
Osteoclasts Cells that break down bone matrix Large cells with approximately 50 nuclei Dissolve matrix by secreting acids & certain enzymes Dissolved minerals are reabsorbed in a process called osteolysis – “lysis” – loosen or dissolve
Osteoblast-Osteoclast Relationship Osteoclasts are constantly destroying bone matrix & osteoblasts are always adding it – Remember…osteoblasts = building bone – Remember…osteoclasts = crush bone When osteoclasts remove calcium salts faster than osteoblasts deposit them, bones weaken The converse is also true – Stress body through exercise = strengthen muscle & bones – Declining muscular activity = reduction of bone mass at sites of muscle attachment
Bone Formation & Growth Begins to form 6 weeks after fertilization – It is cartilaginous Ossification occurs – Process by which cartilage is replaced by bone
Types of Cartilage Hyaline cartilage: – translucent matrix – no prominent fibers Reduces friction in joints Elastic cartilage: – tightly packed elastic fibers Flexible support Fibrocartilage: – very dense collagen fibers Resists compression
Bone Remodeling Throughout adult life osteocytes, osteoclasts & osteoblasts remain active In young adults, 1/5 of the adult skeleton is recycled & replaced each year Regular exercise is essential in maintaining normal bone structure
Bone Fractures Fractures are cracks or breaks in bone Most heal if components of blood supply survive Due to – Extreme loads – Sudden impacts – Stresses from unusual directions
Bone Repair Process
Examples of Fractures
Effects of Hormones (Endocrine System) on Bone Relationship between the Endocrine & Skeletal Systems – Calcitriol: essential for normal Ca & P ion absorption – Hormone GH (growth hormone): increases rate of mitosis of chondrocytes & osteoblasts, increases rate of protein synthesis (collagen & cartilage for cartilage & bone formation) – Parathyroid hormone: increases reabsorption of calcium from bones to the blood, raises blood Ca levels & increases absorption of Ca by small intestine & kidneys – Calcitonin: decreases the reabsorption of Ca from bones, lowering blood Ca levels – Estrogen or Testosterone: promotes closure of epiphyses of long bones (stops growth) & helps retain Ca in bones (maintaining strong bone matrix)
Effects of Nutrition on Bone Body needs constant dietary supply of calcium, phosphate salts, magnesium, fluoride, iron & manganese Vitamin A stimulates osteoblast activity Vitamin C stimulates osteoblast development Lack results in scurvy, a loss of bone mass & strength Vitamins K & B12 make proteins (collagen) in bone
Effects of Nutrition on Bone Vitamin D helps integrate Ca in bone tissue – If we do not replace Ca & P ions lost each day in urine, these ions will be released from bones Makes bones weaker – Rickets (a form of osteomalacia) caused by inadequate exposure to sunlight Bones become flexible & bow out Ca is most abundant mineral in body – Helps bone growth – Neuromuscular activity
Make sure you READ the directions & FOLLOW them CAREFULLY! You MUST wear your SAFETY EQUIPMENT! – Acetic acid??? Chemical formula? CH 3 COOH – Sodium oxalate??? Formula? Na 2 C 2 O 4 Answer all the Follow-Up Questions after each Part. Clean your LAB STATIONS!
INTRODUCTION: What makes bones strong? Some say you should drink milk when your bones are developing. Is this logical? Using your knowledge of osseous tissue, perform the following lab & answer the Conclusion & Application questions. PART ONE: GOGGLES ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS LAB!! 1.Take an uncooked chicken bone & break it in half. 2.Take one side & pour the contents of the marrow cavity onto a slide and create a wet mount using bromothymol blue dye (make sure the slide contents are VERY thin!). 3.Look at the wet mount under the microscope using medium and/or high power. DRAW WHAT YOU SEE (using your correct format for microscope drawings) & label properly. ANSWER the FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS
PART TWO: 1.Take one half of the chicken bone & break it in half again. 2.Place one half of the new broken bone into a test tube containing distilled water & the remaining half place into a test tube of acetic acid (vinegar). 3.Using masking tape & a pen, identify each test tube as ACID & WATER. 4.Place the test tubes into a holder for hours. MAKE A PREDICTION: What do you think the effect of each liquid will be on the bones? The End
PART THREE: PUT YOUR GOGGLES ON!!! Must be completed hours after Part Two! 1.Mark two clean test tubes as ACID & WATER with a piece of masking tape & a pen. 2.Remove 3-4 milliliters of solution from each test tube into the correct clean test tube. DO NOT USE THE SAME PIPET FOR EACH TUBE!!! 3.Add 2-3 drops of 1% sodium oxalate into each of the NEW test tubes filled with solution. Watch what happens…DESCRIBE IT! ANSWER the FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS.
PART FOUR: POSITIVE CONTROL TEST 1.Add 1.5 grams of calcium carbonate powder into a beaker. 2.Add 6 ml of acetic acid, stir well allowing the gas to evolve. Let any remaining solid settle to the bottom. 3.Filter the top portion of the liquid located in the beaker into a clean test tube. This solution should be CLEAR. 4.Add 3 drops of 1% sodium oxalate solution to the test tube of filtered liquid. ANSWER the FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS.
PART FIVE: Hardness, Color, Texture Tests 1.Using a set of tweezers, extract each of the bones, wash them off & check for hardness, using the tweezers. WRITE DOWN YOUR OBSERVATIONS. 2.Using the magnifying glass, observe the color & texture of the bones. WRITE DOWN YOUR OBSERVATIONS. 3.Place the bones back into their original solutions & store in the classroom for another hours. You may need to add more vinegar or water to your test tubes. 4.REPEAT steps 1-2 after the hour period is up. ANSWER the FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS. The End
