Figure 1: (a) Diagram showing the formation of osteoclasts by fusion of mononuclear precursor cells, (b) Diagram depicting the role of RANK (receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B), RANK ligand and osteoprotegerin in osteoclastogenesis, (c) Diagram showing structure of an osteoclast and the creation of an acidic micro environment, (d) Diagram showing the degradation of the inorganic matrix via the carbonic anhydrase II enzyme (CA II), disintegration of the organic matrix via cysteine proteinase (CP), collagenase (CL) and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzymes and the transcytosis of the degraded products
