  • Musculoskeletal System Research Paper

    The musculoskeletal system provides form, support, stability and it is responsible for the movement of the body. The strong protective skeletal layer protects vital organs. For example rib cage protects the heart, kidneys and lungs from any traumatic injury. Bones provide framework that supports and keeps the body from collapsing. It is the major supporting structure of the body. The bone is classified by their shape or structure as cortical bones are dense and compact and cancellous is spongy.…

  • Different Bone Types

    in their proper place. The strong bones of the spine, pelvis and legs enable people to stand upright, supporting the weight of the entire body. Movement The skeletal bones are held together by ligaments, and tendons attach the muscles to the bones of the skeleton. The muscular and skeletal systems work together as the musculoskeletal system, which enables body movement and stability. Protection The skeleton protects the internal organs from damage by surrounding them with bone. Bone is living…

  • What Is Achondroplasia?

    FGFR3 works to maintain the structural integrity inside the connective tissue. ACH mainly affects the skeletal system, which is why people who inherit the mutated FGFR3 gene are smaller than the average person. ACH only affects two organs in the body which are the bone and cartilage. This affects the skeletal system because, it makes the cartilage unable to convert to bone tissue. People with ACH usually have short arms and legs. Without having ACH your cartilage…

  • Oxytocin Vs Bone

    communicate is by adding phosphate groups to a neighboring protein and oxytocin helps by promoting cell proliferation. Oxytocin levels and oxytocin receptors reduce the expression in muscle stem cells during aging which in turn affects the homeostasis of skeletal muscle tissue (Colaianni, Sun, Zaidi and Zallone 2015). In females, oxytocin helps to induce labor by contracting the uterus. It also stimulates the ejection of milk in the breasts and stops once breast feeding cease (Elabd and Sabry…

  • Human Skeleton System Essay

    The human skeleton system is a highly dynamic organ made up of a total of 213 bones in adults . It is formed by a mineralized connective tissue and comprises two mainly cellular types: osteoblast-lineage cells, and osteoclast-lineage cells. The skeletal system exerts fundamental functions in the body, such as supporting and providing mechanical protection to soft tissues; storing several minerals (mainly calcium and phosphate), and releasing them in the blood stream when required; harboring the…

  • Ageing Essay

    It comprises approximately 80% of the total skeletal tissue mass and is most common in the long bone shafts, or diaphysis, of the body (limbs, appendicular skeleton) [7, 8]. Cortical bone is characterized by a slow turnover rate, with a high resistance to bending and torsion, providing a great compressive…

  • Case Study Of Paget's Disease Of Bone

    tissue that needs replacing as it dies of. Paget’s disease of bone is a condition that rapidly accelerates the process of bone regeneration which causes symptoms ranging from soft bones to abnormal bone growth. Paget’s disease can affect the skeletal system anywhere from the head down to the legs and anything in between. Abnormal bone growth on the skull often leads to headaches and even hearing loss; soft bone tissue…

  • Compare And Contrast Bone Growth And Remodeling

    -The Skeletal System 1. Explain how and when bone is remodeled. Include the cells and hormones involved in the process. • Bone remodeling is essentially a lifelong process. The mature bone tissue is removed and replaced the new bone tissue. This promotes healthy bones and can also reshape the bones from injuries like fractures. Osteoblasts secrete new bone tissue while osteoclasts break down the old bone tissues. The body signals the correct amount of growth through parathyroid and growth…

  • Human Body: The Human Skeletal System

    The human body contains a bunch of different systems, and it has many divisions within the systems. Organs, tissues, bones, joints, and cartilage are just a few things that are the genetic makeup of the actually human skeletal system. The human skeletal system is very diverse but unique at the same time. Bones are responsible for playing a major role in how our body is made up and functions. A bone is a rigid organ in which it contains living and evolving tissue that has various particular…
