Osteocytes as a record of bone formation dynamics: a mathematical model of osteocyte generation in bone matrix.

Abstract

The formation of new bone involves both the deposition of bone matrix, and the formation of a network of cells embedded within the bone matrix, called osteocytes. Osteocytes derive from bone-synthesising cells (osteoblasts) that become buried in bone matrix during bone deposition. The generation of osteocytes is a complex process that remains incompletely… (More)
