Rabbit anti Human osteocalcin antibody recognizes human osteocalcin, also known as bone gla protein. Osteocalcin 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.
