Examples

  • Arrows denote growth lines used to age the specimen; HC refers to round haversian canals and EB to layers of endosteal bone.

    The Panda's Thumb: Development Archives

  • The specimen is inferred to represent a five-year-old individual and to be at a young adult ontogenetic stage, based on a combination of histological features including narrower outermost zones, dense haversian bone, extensive and multiple endosteal bone depositional events and absence of an external fundamental system. d, Close up of the gastroliths scale bar, 2 cm.

  • It is composed of two layers, an inner or meningeal and an outer or endosteal, closely connected together, except in certain situations, where, as already described (page 654), they separate to form sinuses for the passage of venous blood.

  • It is separated from the wall of the vertebral canal by a space, the epidural space, which contains a quantity of loose areolar tissue and a plexus of veins; the situation of these veins between the dura mater and the periosteum of the vertebræ corresponds therefore to that of the cranial sinuses between the meningeal and endosteal layers of the cranial dura mater.

    IX. Neurology. 4g. The Meninges of the Brain and Medulla Spinalis

  • The endosteal layer is the internal periosteum for the cranial bones, and contains the bloodvessels for their supply.

    IX. Neurology. 4g. The Meninges of the Brain and Medulla Spinalis

  • —The cranial dura mater consists of white fibrous tissue and elastic fibers arranged in flattened laminæ which are imperfectly separated by lacunar spaces and bloodvessels into two layers, endosteal and meningeal.

    IX. Neurology. 4g. The Meninges of the Brain and Medulla Spinalis

  • The Spinal Dura Mater (dura mater spinalis; spinal dura) (Fig. 767) forms a loose sheath around the medulla spinalis, and represents only the inner or meningeal layer of the cranial dura mater; the outer or endosteal layer ceases at the foramen magnum, its place being taken by the periosteum lining the vertebral canal.

  • Moreover, analysis of bone sections revealed an intact endosteal lining (Figure S7), suggesting that G-CSF may modulate bone homeostasis through osteoblasts.

  • Moreover, the mutant mice developed osteopenia with loss of the endosteal lining (Figure S7).

  • Col1a1-Krm2 transgenic mice (top, scale bars, 1 mm), as is the distance between the labeled surfaces at endosteal bone surfaces of the tibia (bottom, scale bars, 20 µm).
