Technical Data
Osteocalcin (Bone-Gla-Protein, BGLAP, BGP, Bone gamma Carboxyglutamate Protein, Gamma Carboxyglutamic Acid-containing Protein, PMF1)
Osteocalcin belongs to the osteocalcin/matrix Gla protein family and constitutes 1-2% of the total bone protein. It is a 49aa single chain vitamin K dependent protein, made by osteoblasts, and is a major component of the noncollagenous bone matrix. Post translational modification by a vitamin K dependent carboxylase produces three g carboxyglutamic acid residues at positions 17, 21 and 24, giving it a high affinity for calcium. It also binds strongly to apatite.

Suitable for use in sandwich ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Sandwich ELISA: 1:100-1:2000
Western Blot: 1-10ug/ml under reducing or non-reducing conditions.
Immunohistochemistry (Frozen/paraffin): 1-10ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
