Background Information

Osteocalcin is a small, highly conserved molecule associated with mineralization of bone matrix. Osteocalcin is specifically expressed in osteoblasts and is the most abundant non-collagenous protein in bone. It regulates the dynamics of new bone formation and bone resorption by interaction with vitamin D, and by influencing the differentiation of osteoblasts. Osteocalcin is also involved in the posttranslational targeting of vitamin K-dependent gamma-carboxylation, which controls blood coagulation.
