  • FunctionConstitutes 1-2% of the total bone protein. It binds strongly to apatite and calcium.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs 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 localizationSecreted.
  • Information by UniProt
