Osteopontin is involved in enhancing production of interferon-gamma and interleukin-12 and reducing production of interleukin-10. It is essential in the pathway that leads to type I immunity. Osteoponitn is also thought to be important to cell-matrix interaction, and can bind fibronectin, collagen and calcium.
Osteopontin has been suggested to have a role in atherosclerosis, bone remodelling, angiogenesis, wound healing and tissue injuries.
