Question

How does the bone matrix differ from the matrix of cartilage?


Solution

Cartilage and bone tissues are both made up of cells within a non-cellular matrix of non-living ground material. This gives them a similar structure, and they also share the function of support, protect, and moved the big difference between cartilage and bone tissues is in the composition of the matrix.
Cartilage tissues:
1) Matrix is nonvascular
2) Matrix has protein called chondrin.
3) Fairly soft and pliable in elastic cartilage to quite rigid in hyaline cartilage.
4) Matrix is nonliving, but is organic in nature, being produced by the cells. 5) Matrix is a homogenous mass without lamellae.
6) Matrix may or may not have calcium salts.

Bone tissues
1)
Matrix is vascular.
2) Matrix has protein called ossein.
3) Matrix occur lamellae.
4) Matrix is both organic and inorganic in nature.
5) Matrix always have calcium salts.
