Scope note: A specialized CONNECTIVE TISSUE that is the main constituent of the SKELETON. The principal cellular component of bone is comprised of OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; and OSTEOCLASTS, while FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and hydroxyapatite crystals form the BONE MATRIX.
Annotation: /cytol: consider also OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; /embryol: consider also OSTEOGENESIS; /surg: consider also OSTEOTOMY or ARTHRODESIS or FRACTURE FIXATION & its specifics; differentiate from SKELETON which is almost never used: restrict SKELETON to bone arrangement as a whole & not for "skeletal" which usually means "bone" (= BONE AND BONES); inflammation = OSTEITIS; necrosis = OSTEONECROSIS;
