  • Cartilage and Bone

    Cartilage and bone are both stiff connective tissues which form an essential structural component of the body of animal organisms‚ including human beings. However‚ they are also quite different in both composition and function. Bones are extremely hard‚ dense tissue which provide a supportive frame for the body ‚ as well as serving as production and storage centers for cells and minerals‚ whereas cartilage is a more flexible tissue found in more specific locations of the body‚ essentially midway

    up of cartilage and bone. Both bone and cartilage are connective tissues‚ that is‚ they are composed of cells in a matrix with intracellular fibers. Just imagine connective tissue as a gelatin salad with grapes and coconut. The grapes would represent cells‚ the gelatin the support material for matrix‚ and the pieces of coconut the intracellular fibers. By changing the amounts of each ingredient and adding extra substances‚ we can produce a material that is very hard like bone and can withstand weight

    ~Cross-section of a bone~ Articular cartilage - is a white‚ smooth tissue which covers the ends of bones in joints. Periosteum - is a fibrous sheath that covers bones. It contains the blood vessels and nerves that provide nourishment and sensation to the bone. Cortical bone - forms the outer shell of all bone and also the shafts in long bones. Trabecular bone - is the tissue that makes up the interior of bones. Epiphyseal

Osteoblasts are the specific types of cells that produce the normal microanatomy of the tissue. 5a. With ageing‚ bone mass decreases. This is espeically true of women following menopuase. Estrogen acts as a protector of bone by inhibiting the activity of osteoclasts. Once estrogen levels drop‚ after menopause‚ osteoclast activity increases. 5b. Bone mineral density (BMD)
