Reference: OBL: 'osteoblast-like'?

Reference information:
"To test this hypothesis, we measured cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) production in response to various agonists in bone-derived osteoblast-like (OBL) cells from trabecular explants obtained from an iliac crest biopsy of a 25-year-old woman with PHP."

This reference mentions OBL cells, but it doesn't seem to fit with RBCs in the urine.
