Pictured above are two osteocytes. Osteocytes are the most abundant cell type in the bone, derived from terminally-differentiated osteoblasts that become embedded in the bone matrix during bone formation and remodeling. These cells mediate bone remodeling in response to damage and mechanical forces.
