Chemicals 4. Organs 2. Cells 5. Body Systems 3. Tissue 6. Organisms 3) Name the smallest organizational level of the body. - Chemicals 4) Name the smallest unit of life in the body. -Cells 5) List the eleven systems of the body. 1. Integumentary (skin & appendages) 2. Skeletal 7. Digestive 3. Muscular 8. Urinary 4. Nervous 9. Lymphatic & Immunity 5. Endocrine 10. Respiratory 6. Cardiovascular 11.

Osteoclasts 3. Osteocytes 2. Osteoblasts 4. Progenitor (stem) cells 18) Name the functions of bones. - Protection, rigidity and form levers, aid locomotion, storage of minerals, form the cellular blood elements. 19) Name the 3 blood cell types that are formed in the bone marrow. 1.

Leukocytes ANATOMY OF BONES 20) Know the main parts of mature long bone. - Diaphysis, epiphysis, metaphysis, epiphyseal cartilage (“physis”) 21) Give the alternative names for “adult” bone and “juvenile” or “immature” bone - “Adult” bone = lamellar bone - “ Juvenile” or “immature” bone = woven bone 22) Briefly discuss how juvenile bone can be distinguished from adult bone by visual inspection of a bone specimen or on a radiograph. - Woven bone is not visible on a radiograph. 23) Name the types of gross appearances of adult bone. - Compact (“cortical”) bone = appears solid or dense - Cancellous (“spongy”) bone = visible spaces in it. 24) Distinguish compact bone from spongy bone and be able to identify each on a radiograph or specimen. 25) Give the alternative name(s) for epiphyseal cartilage. - Growth plate, physis 26) Name the structure that separates the epiphysis and metaphysis of immature bone. - Physis 27) Name the structure which gives rise to increase in the length of juvenile bone. - Growth plate 28) Describe the type of bone found in the medullary cavity of a long bone. - Marrow 29) Give the name of the surface where the surface of one bone forms a joint with another bone. - Articular cartilage 30) In general terms, describe the location and function of hyaline cartilage. - Translucent type of cartilage present in joints, found on articular surfaces and the epiphyseal plate 31) Know the classification of bones according to gross appearances and give their general functions. CLINICAL APPLICATIONS 32) Discuss briefly the concept of premature closure of a growth plate in juvenile animals. - Premature closure of a growth plate in juvenile animals.
