Caption: Bone marrow. Computer artwork of the end of a long bone, showing bone marrow in its interior. There are two types of bone marrow, red and yellow. Red marrow (seen here) consists mainly of myeloid tissue, involved in the production of cellular blood components such as red blood cells, platelets and white blood cells. Yellow marrow is mainly fat cells. At birth, all bone marrow is red. With age, more and more is converted to yellow. About half an adult's bone marrow is red and is found mainly in the flat bones, and in the cancellous (spongy) material (seen here) at the ends of the long bones. Yellow marrow is found in the hollow interior in the middle of long bones.
