Bone Structure Osteoblast (Bone Formation) 3 Steps in Bone Formation Process • Production of Extracellular Organic Matrix • Mineralization of Matrix to form Bone • Remodelling by Resorption, Refor mation Bone formation actively fixes circulating calcium in its mineral form (removing it from bloodstream)

Osteoclast (Bone Resorption) Release Calcium into Systemic Circulation Actively unfixes the calcium ↑ Circulating Calcium Levels
