Among vertebrates, some teleosts are unique in having bone which lacks osteocytes embedded in the matrix. The fate of cells that secrete the matrix of these acellular bones has not been investigated thoroughly. Histological and fluorescent microscopic analysis of the vertebral bone of Oryzias latipes demonstrated that acellularity is not a secondary… CONTINUE READING
