Osteoclast Eroding Osteoid Substance 3D Model
This is the model of an activated osteoclast (half section) with its Howship
s lacuna, it is eroding osteoid substance. Notice the hemispherical shape of the osteoclast (red), its convex surface dotted with microvilli, the ruffled border (yellow) in the concave surface facing the Howships lacuna; several nuclei can be seen in the cross section (blue). Notice also the sealing zone which isolates the Howship`s lacuna. The osteoid substance (pink) and some cartilaginous mineralised substance (skyblue) can be seen below. I hope it will be of help for undergraduate students of veterinary science or medicine.
