Technical Data
Osteocalcin (Bone-Gla-Protein, BGLAP, BGP, Bone gamma Carboxyglutamate Protein, Gamma Carboxyglutamic Acid-containing Protein, PMF1)
Osteocalcin (Bone Gla Protein) is a 49aa single chain vitamin K dependent protein (MW 5.8kD), made by osteoblasts that is a major component of the non-collagenous bone matrix. Serum osteocalcin is elevated in diseases characterized by increased bone turnover such as osteoporosis, hyperparathyroidism and Pagets disease, and low in conditions associated with low bone turnover such as hypoparathyroidism and growth hormone deficiency.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
