Mouse anti Human osteocalcin antibody, clone 2D4 recognizes human osteocalcin, also known as bone gla protein or Gamma-carboxyglutamic acid-containing protein. Osteocalcin is a 49 amino acid ~5 kDa calcium-binding bone protein comprising ~1-2% total bone protein mass. Osteocalcin also has an additional 28 amino acid propeptide region along with a 23 amino acid signal peptide region.
