Osteoblasts surrounded by mineralized osteoid gradu- ally lose their ability to form bones and they become Remodeling of Bone osteocytes 250 mg chloromycetin visa. The cytoplasmic connection between osteoblasts and which is synchronized by bone formation and resorption osteocytes become canaliculi (Fig 500mg chloromycetin with mastercard. During the growth period order chloromycetin 250mg with visa, bone formation exceeds nutrients, chemicals and waste products between the bone resorption so that the bone mass increases.

Therefore, they are large, multinucleated cells mation so that bone mass slowly decreases.

The chemicals secreted by osteoclasts make the envi- ronment acidic that enhances the solubility of bone minerals and the enzymes secreted cause degradation of the organic matrix. Mechanism of Bone Formation E Formation of bone is the function of osteoblasts (Figs. Osteoblasts synthesize collagen and extrude it into the adjacent extracellular space (Fig. This process of transfer of calcium carried out by fibrils form the organic matrix of the bone, which is osteocytes is known as osteocytic osteolysis. In the osteoid, calcium-phosphate is deposited which mass rather removes calcium from the recently formed is called as mineralization of bone. The mineralized matrix slowly accumulates and sur- seal plate contains chondrocytes.

Calcium, phosphate and magnesium are essential for bone formation and mineralization. Calcium absorption from the intestine is inversely proportional to its intake, which prevents calcium overload when intake is high or maintains calcium concentration in low calcium intake.

AchR antibodies are heterogeneous with some showing specifcity for antigenic determinants other than those that serve as acetylcholine or alphabungaratoxin binding sites. As many as 85 to 95% of myasthenia gravis patients may manifest acetylcholine receptor antibodies.
