Bone cells. Computer artwork of normal mononucleate bone cells (red) in the lacunae (spaces) of bone tissue. These could be either osteoblasts or osteoclasts. Osteoblasts produce bone sialoprotein and osteocalcin, and are responsible for bone formation. Osteoclasts remodel bone by degrading and reabsorbing it in response to growth or changing mechanical stress.
