This occurs early, creating the so-called anabolic window. Additionally, PTH causes an overfilling of erosion pits, thereby creating net bone formation. The increased number of osteoblasts can be achieved by either an increase in their rate of production from progenitors, a decrease in the rate of their death by apoptosis, or a combination of the two. Studies in mice indicate that chronic and intermittent PTH elevations increase osteoblast number by different mechanisms. The increase in osteoblast number and the anabolic effect of intermittent PTH can be accounted for by attenuation of osteoblast apoptosis and increased recruitment of osteoblast progenitors into the differentiation pathway.

Osteoblasts carry out the functions of bone matrix protein secretion and bone mineralization (Fig. 7). Upon completion of bone matrix formation, some mature osteoblasts remain entrapped in bone as osteocytes, some flatten to cover quiescent bone surfaces as bone lining cells, and the remainder die by apoptosis. Regulation of Osteoclast Generation and Survival Osteoblast Morphology and Function The number and life span of osteoclasts influences the extent of bone resorption in BMUs. An increase in the life span of osteoclasts is likely to lead to an increase The main function of osteoblasts is to synthesize bone matrix.

11). The process of osteocyte formation was long thought to be stochastic. However, it is now recognized that some osteoblasts may be prompted to extend cytoplasmic projections and make contact with already embedded cells, resulting in their differentiation into osteocytes. In particular, expression of the membrane-associated proteins E11/PDPN/GP38 and MMP-14 is required for the formation of osteocyte dendritic processes and canaliculi. This evidence supports the notion that osteocytogenesis is an active process driven by changes in gene expression.
