Modified from definitions of nanoparticle and nanogel in [refs. The basis of the nm limit is the fact that novel properties that differentiate particles from the bulk material typically develop at a critical length scale of under nm. Because other phenomena transparency or turbidity, ultrafiltration, stable dispersion, etc.
Bone structure[ edit ] The skeleton is a large organ that is formed and degraded throughout life in the air-breathing vertebrates. The skeleton, often referred to as the skeletal system, is important both as a supporting structure and for maintenance of calcium, phosphate, and acid-base status in the whole organism.
The bone matrix consists of protein and mineral. The protein forms the organic matrix. It is synthesized and then the mineral is added. The vast majority of the organic matrix is collagenwhich provides tensile strength. The matrix is mineralized by deposition of hydroxyapatite alternative name, hydroxylapatite.
This mineral is hard, and provides compressive strength. Thus, the collagen and mineral together are a composite material with excellent tensile and compressive strength, which can bend under a strain and recover its shape without damage.
This is called elastic deformation. Forces that exceed the capacity of bone to behave elastically may cause failure, typically bone fractures.
Bone remodeling[ edit ] Bone is a dynamic tissue that is constantly being reshaped by osteoblastswhich produce and secrete matrix proteins and transport mineral into the matrix, and osteoclastswhich break down the tissues. Osteoblasts[ edit ] Osteoblasts are the major cellular component of bone.
Osteoblasts arise from mesenchymal stem cells MSC. MSC give rise to osteoblasts, adipocytesand myocytes among other cell types. Osteoblast quantity is understood to be inversely proportional to that of marrow adipocytes which comprise marrow adipose tissue MAT.
Osteoblasts are found in large numbers in the periosteumthe thin connective tissue layer on the outside surface of bones, and in the endosteum. Normally, almost all of the bone matrix, in the air breathing vertebratesis mineralized by the osteoblasts.
Before the organic matrix is mineralized, it is called the osteoid. Osteoblasts buried in the matrix are called osteocytes. During bone formation, the surface layer of osteoblasts consists of cuboidal cells, called active osteoblasts. When the bone-forming unit is not actively synthesizing bone, the surface osteoblasts are flattened and are called inactive osteoblasts.
Osteocytes remain alive and are connected by cell processes to a surface layer of osteoblasts. Osteocytes have important functions in skeletal maintenance.
Osteoclasts[ edit ] Osteoclasts break down bone tissue, and along with osteoblasts and osteocytes form the structural components of bone.
In the hollow within bones are many other cell types of the bone marrow. Components that are essential for osteoblast bone formation include mesenchymal stem cells osteoblast precursor and blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients for bone formation. Bone is a highly vascular tissue, and active formation of blood vessel cells, also from mesenchymal stem cells, is essential to support the metabolic activity of bone.
The balance of bone formation and bone resorption tends to be negative with age, particularly in post-menopausal women,  often leading to a loss of bone serious enough to cause fractures, which is called osteoporosis.
Osteogenesis[ edit ] Bone is formed by one of two processes: Endochondral ossification is the process of forming bone from cartilage and this is the usual method. This form of bone development is the more complex form: Intramembranous ossification is the direct ossification of mesenchyme as happens during the formation of the membrane bones of the skull and others.
A second required transcription factor is Sp7 transcription factor. The system of cartilage replacement by bone has a complex regulatory system.
BMP2 also regulates early skeletal patterning. An additional family of essential regulatory factors is the fibroblast growth factors FGFs that determine where skeletal elements occur in relation to the skin. Steroid and protein hormones[ edit ] Many other regulatory systems are involved in the transition of cartilage to bone and in bone maintenance.
A particularly important bone-targeted hormonal regulator is parathyroid hormone PTH.The recruit training matrix shows what your recruit is doing each day of boot camp.
