Osteoblast. Computer artwork of an osteoblast bone cell. Osteoblasts are primarily found in regions of new bone growth. They produce and secrete osteoid, the matrix of new bone that is composed of collagen fibrils and other structural proteins. As soon as osteoid is formed, calcium salts crystallise inside it to form hard, mineralised bone.
