Structure of Bone Bone is a specialized connective tissue consisting of mineral (70%), collagen (20%), water (8%), and cells (2%). Approximately 95% of the mineral is hydroxyapatite stored as platelike crystals. The collagen component is secreted by osteoblasts and is referred to as osteoid, a type I collagen. Osteoblasts. Osteoblasts are bone-forming cells that synthesize the protein osteoid and promote bone deposition. The mechanism for bone formation by osteoblasts is a complex interplay between chemical, electrical, and physical factors.
