Embryonic cartilage in Mammal Developing Bone

  1. 1. Embryonic Cartilage Slide label: Mammal cartilage bone developing Sarah Aurora W. Tabada
  2. 2. Cartilage • connective tissue consisting of a dense matrix of collagen fibres and elastic fibres embedded in a rubbery ground substance. • Chondroblasts o synthesizes the matrix, eventually embedded in the matrix as chondrocytes. • Chondrocytes o mature cartilage cells occurring, either singly or in groups, within spaces (lacunae) in the matrix • Perichondrium o membrane of dense irregular connective tissue surrounding surface of cartilage o Only site in the cartilage with blood vessels and nerves
  3. 3. Hyaline Cartilage • Most abundant • Structure: - Consist of bluish-white, shiny ground elastic material with a matrix of chondroitin sulphate into which many fine collagen fibrils are embedded - It contains numerous chondrocytes. - Functions: - Provide smooth surfaces for easy movement and sliding of tissue over each other. - Support movable joints between bones (reduce friction) - Provide flexibility and support - Support physical structure of embryo before bones form
  4. 4. Hyaline Cartilage • Location: o Bronchi o Bronchial Tubes o Costal Cartilages o Larynx (voice-box) o Nose o Trachea o Surface of bones at joints susceptible to wear • Ends of the long bones and anterior ends of the ribs o Embryonic skeleton (i.e. in fetus)
