  • Function
    Constitutes 1-2% of the total bone protein. It binds strongly to apatite and calcium.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the osteocalcin/matrix Gla protein family.
    Contains 1 Gla (gamma-carboxy-glutamate) domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Gamma-carboxyglutamate residues are formed by vitamin K dependent carboxylation. These residues are essential for the binding of calcium.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
  • Information by UniProt
