A mesenchymal cell that differentiates into an osteoblast.
Synonym(s): preosteoblast.

osteoprogenitor cell

Any of the mesenchyme precursor cells committed to the bone lineage and capable of producing osteoblasts and osteocytes. Osteoprogenitor cells are found in bone, bone marrow, and other connective tissue.
