What is the junction between the diaphysis and epiphysis in a growing bone called?
The diaphysis is separated from the ends of the bone, called the epiphysis, by a layer bone called the metaphysis. In growing bones, part of the metaphysis is a layer of cartilage called the epiphyseal growth plate. The epiphysis is the rounded end of a long bone, at its joint with adjacent bone(s). Between the epiphysis and diaphysis (the long midsection of the long bone) lies the metaphysis, including the epiphyseal plate (growth plate). is called growth plate several layers of cells reside within epiphyseal disks of developing long bones. which layers is responsible for anchoring the disk to the bony epiphysis
