Endochondral Osteoblasts (REFBs)


Bn.REFBs.EOCs

Osteoblasts are responsible for deposition of the mineral components of the bone matrix. Osteoblasts attach to the surface of the bone matrix, proliferate, and secrete type I collagen and bone-specific non-collagenous proteins such as osteocalcin. These proteins are crucial for mineralization of the bone matrix. 


Mineralized bone matrix can be stained with alizarin red.
