One of the protoplasmic cells which occur in the osteogenetic layer of the periosteum, and from or around which the matrix of the bone is developed; an osteoplast.
cell formed from an osteo-progenitor cell; it participates in bone formation by secreting some organic components and inorganic salts
osteon = bone + blastos = germ; immature bone-producing cell.
The cell which produces osteoid, which becomes mineralized with calcium to form new hard bone.
a cell which forms bone.
a type of cell that form bone.
A cell that secretes the bone matrix.
A cell responsible for the development of new bone.
An immature cell that is associated with bone production as it matures.
Mesodermal cell that gives rise to bone.
a cell from which bone develops
OSS-tee-o-blast A bone cell that secretes matrix. 595
Cells responsible for laying down the protein matrix upon which calcium salts, particularly calcium phosphates, are deposited to form bone.
(OHS-tee-o-blahst') A type of bone cell characterized by its mobility and by its ability to produce bone matrix.
A cell that forms bone.
A cell that produces bone
A bone-forming cell.
bone forming cells
a type of cell involved in bone remodelling that helps to build bone
Gr. osteon - bone; Gr. blastos - germ, bud, shoot]. A cell which produces bone matrix. An osteoblast will become an osteocyte once it becomes embedded within the matrix of the bone.
a cell that participates in bone formation by secreting some organic components and inorganic salts.
A cell that builds bone.
An osteoblast is a type of cell that is responsible for the formation of bone.
A cell that is concerned with the formation of bone.
type of cell which secretes bone material
bone cells that form new bone.
cell found in bone; its function is to form the tissue and minerals that give bone its strength.
An osteoblast (from the Greek words for "bone" and "germ" or embryonic) is a mononucleate cell that is responsible for bone formation. Osteoblasts produce osteoid, which is composed mainly of Type I collagen. Osteoblasts also are also responsible for mineralization of the osteoid matrix.
