1 The Skeletal System Milo Mitchell and Eli Harris

2 Function Support Movement Protection Blood Cell Production Ion Storage Endocrine Regulation

3 Bones, Ligaments, Muscles, and Tendons Bones provide support Joints provide a movement point Tendons connect muscles to bones Ligaments connect bones to bones Muscles move by pulling on bones

4 Axial and Appendicular Skeleton Axial Skeleton (80 Bones) Formed by vertebral column, part of the rib cage, and the skull Maintains upright posture Human is able to survive with just the axial skeleton Appendicular Skeleton (126 Bones) Formed by pectoral girdles, upper limbs, pelvis, and lower limbs Enables locomotion Protects major organs (digestion, excretion, and reproduction)

5 Figure of a Long Bone

6 Types of Bone Cells Osteoblasts Derive from the bone marrow Single nucleus Responsible for the synthesis and mineralization of bone during initial bone formation and remodeling Form closely packed sheet on bone’s surface Transform into osteocytes Become flattened “lining cells” once the cavity is filled Three osteoblasts in a developing bone

7 Types of Bone Cells (cont.) Osteocytes Derive from osteoblasts Found within the bone Most abundant type of cell in mature bone tissue Long-lived Networked via long cytoplasmic extensions Capable of bone deposition, resorption, and remodeling Transverse Section of Bone

8 Type of Bone Cells (cont.) Osteoclasts Large cells with multiple nuclei Derive from bone marrow Found in pits in the bone surface (Resorption bays) Responsible for breaking down bone tissue Bone resorption

9 Homeostasis (Bone Growth) Calcium homeostasis regulates calcium flow to the bones. Calcium release is regulated by the parathyroid hormone.

10 “Animal” Skeletal System v. Human Skeletal System 3 levels of identification can distinguish human bones from animal bones: 1.Gross Skeletal Anatomy 2.Bone Macrostructure 3.Bone Microstructure

11 Gross Skeletal Anatomy Also have dentitional (oral) differences as humans have smaller canines, a different dental formula, and larger incisors. AnimalHuman ●Small vault ●Large face ●No chin ●V shaped mandible ●Large bulbous vault ●Small Face ●Chin ●U shaped Mandible

12 Bone Macrostructure and Bone Microstructure Animal Bones: Greater density Less porous Thicker in the cross section than human bones Comparative thickness of the cross section of animal versus human bone

13 Hydrostatic Skeleton A skeleton formed by a fluid-filled compartment called the coelom.

14 Exoskeleton and Endoskeleton Exoskeleton: external encasement on the surface of an animal Exoskeleton vs. Endoskeleton Endoskeleton: Structures located within the soft tissue of organisms.

15 Osteophytes Commonly referred to as bone spurs or parrot beak Bony projections along joint margins Can also form on vertebra (result of degeneration brought about by aging) Results from changes in formation (aging, degeneration, disease, etc.) Different from enthesophytes Bony projections along tendons or ligaments

16 Osteophytes (cont.) Can limit joint movement and cause pain Treatment: Non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs and surgery Asymptotic cases typically go untreated
