cells of bone and cartilage tissues

Post by mieuses » Sun Nov 27, 2011 4:08 pm

I have a problem in distinguishing between blasts and progenitor cells in cartilage and bone tissues under the microscope.now here's the situation:
what I think I know:differentiation is a gradual process and so distinguishing between similar-looking adjacent cells of a growing tissue is not possible by mere appearance(like osteogenic cells and osteoblasts)
problem:which are osteoblasts,chondroblasts;and which are osteoprogenitor,chondroprogenitor cells?I've had some conflicts on this while looking into multiple references.help please?

Those two might have some similarity but definitely functions in different way; chondroblast forms the cartilage while osteoblast forms the bone. Both played a significant role in bone development. Chondroblast found in the lacunae present in the groups of two or more and the osteblast located in the deeper layer of bone marrow.

I'm sorry there's been a misunderstanding,what I meant to say is I need to know -in bone tissue-how to distinguish osteoblasts and osteogenic cells.and -in cartilage tissue-which are chondroblasts and chondrogenic cells
