Osteoclast progenitors are seeded via the blood stream in the mesenchyme surrounding embryonic long bone models long before the appearance of multinucleated osteoclasts. The proliferation and differentiation of these progenitors in embryonic mouse metatarsal bones was studied with acid phosphatase (AcP) histochemistry and 3H-thymidine autoradiography. In vivo, tartrate-resistant, acid phosphatase-positive, mononuclear cells appear in the periosteum (AcPP-P cells) at the age of 17 days (after… CONTINUE READING
