  • Rat femoral bones were studied by scanning electron microscopy to demonstrate the morphology of osteoclast-bone matrix interfacial relationships. Two general morphological types of actively resorbing osteoclasts were observed . One cell type was approximately ovoid with highly fimbriated borders, fully attached and closely adapted to the resorption surface. The ruffled border of such cells was composed of a number of individual filopodia which were of uniform , regular shape and approximately 2… CONTINUE READING
