This product is specific for intact osteocalcin and recognizes an epitope towards the C-terminal of the molecule.Osteocalcin (Bone Gla Protein) is a 49 amino acid single chain vitamin K dependent protein (MW 5.8 kDa), 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 Paget❏'s disease, and low in conditions associated with low bone turnover such as hypoparathyroidism and growth hormone deficiency.
