The hard, calcified tissue of the skeleton of vertebrate animals, consisting very largely of calcium carbonate, calcium phosphate, and gelatine; as, blood and bone.
One of the pieces or parts of an animal skeleton; as, a rib or a thigh bone; a bone of the arm or leg; also, any fragment of bony substance. (pl.) The frame or skeleton of the body.
The strongest least flexible connective tissue.
Rigid structures composed of living cells rooted in a matrix of calcium, phosphate salts, and collagen fibers. Bones are the primary component of most vertebrate skeletons.
The hard form of connective tissue that makes up most of the skeleton. The organic component is comprised of cells and matrix, and the inorganic is mineral. The framework of the matrix is collagenous fibers, into which is integrated the mineral component of 85 percent calcium phosphate and 10 percent calcium carbonate, giving bone its firmness. Bone is also called osseous tissue.
Dense, hard, connective tissue that forms the majority of the skeleton of vertebrae animals.
The hard tissue that provides structural support to the body. It is composed of hydroxyapatite crystals and collagen. Individual bones are classed as long (arm and leg bones), short (hand bones for example), or flat (like the skull and pelvis).
A hard type of connective tissue primarily made up of osteoblasts, osteocytes and collagen that supports and protects the body.
organs composed of hard living tissue providing structural support to the body and made mostly of collagen and calcium
See osseous tissue.
rigid connective tissue that makes up the skeleton of vertebrates
the porous calcified substance from which bones are made
a complex living tissue that can heal and may be affected by poor diet and lack of exercise
a kind of body tissue which is made of both living and nonliving material
a living tissue, comprised mainly of calcium and protein
an organ which incorporates several different tissues
a simple node in a hierarchy (a skeleton)
The hard, largely calcified connective tissue that forms most of the skeleton in vertebrates.
A connective tissue consisting of bone-building osteoblasts, stationary osteocytes, and bone-destroying osteoclasts, embedded in a mineralized matrix infused with spaces and canals. 594
The dense, semi-rigid, calcified connective tissue that forms the major portion of the skeleton of most vertebrates.
Dense tissue that forms the skeleton. Bone can be donated and transplanted.
n. The main material of most vertebrate skeletons, consisting of approximately equal volumes of collagen fibers (the fibers from which tendons are made) and crystals of bone salt (containing calcium phosphate and hydroxide).
A connective tissue that contains a hardened matrix of mineral salts and collagen fibers. Its cells include osteocytes, which are embedded within lacunae, and the free-roaming osteoblasts and osteoclasts. Bowman's capsule (BO-manz CAP-sool) The part of the kidney nephron that surrounds the glomerulus.
the roots of your teeth are anchored by bone. Healthy teeth stimulate and keep bone tissue healthy.
The hard tissue that forms the skeleton of vertebrates.

The hard tissue that provides structural support to the body. It is primarily composed of hydroxyapatite crystals and collagen. Individual bones may be classed as long, short, or flat.
hard supportive tissue consisting of cells distributed in a matrix of fibrous protein (collagen) and salt (chiefly calcium and phosphate).
living tissue that makes up the body's skeleton.
A type of connective tissue and an organ of the musculoskeletal system. They provide support for the body and serve as sites of muscle attachments.
a special form of connective tissue in which calcium salts are deposited and which provides a framework, or skeleton, for the other tissues of the body.
The dense, hard and slightly stretchy connective tissue that makes up the 206 bones of the human skeleton.
Any of numerous anatomically distinct structures making up the skeleton of a vertebrate animal. There are more than 200 different bones in the human body.
A connective tissue composed of cells embedded in a matrix of ground substance, inorganic salts, and collagenous fibers.
In animation, the rigid extension of a joint, controlled by the joint's rotation and movement. Each joint can have one or more bones attached to it. See also joint, skeleton.
Bone is the substance that forms the skeleton of the body. It is composed chiefly of calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate. It also serves as a storage area for calcium, playing a large role in calcium balance in the blood.
the hard supportive tissue in which the tooth's root is anchored.
Bones are rigid organs that form part of the endoskeleton of vertebrates. Bones function to move, support, and protect the body, produce red and white blood cells and store minerals. Bones come in a variety of shapes and have a complex internal and external structure, allowing them to be lightweight yet strong and hard, while fulfilling their many other functions.
