Active Models for the Transport of Bone Fluid and Nutriens in Lacunar - Canalicular System
Bones are rigid organs that form part of the endoskeleton of vertebrates. They function to move, support, and protect the various organs of the body, produce red and white blood cells and store minerals. Because bones come in a variety of shapes and have a complex internal and external structure, they are lightweight, yet strong and hard, in addition to fulfilling their many other functions. One of the types of tissues that makes up bone is the mineralized osseous tissue, also called compact bone tissue, that gives it rigidity and honeycomb-like three-dimensional internal structure.
