• inversely
  • These data, which strongly suggest that a mild vitamin K deficiency is common in elderly women, were confirmed by the group of Delmas, who also showed that circulating undercarboxylated osteocalcin is inversely correlated with bone mass, and that it is a strong risk factor for hip fracture.

  • metabolic
  • Undercarboxylated osteocalcin has been linked to the regulation of metabolic functions, including glucose and lipid metabolism. (mdpi.com)
  • As such, further studies that examine each form of osteocalcin are required to elucidate if it is a mediator of atherogenesis, and whether it functions independently of metabolic factors. (mdpi.com)
  • cells
  • We demonstrate for the first time that a distinct subpopulation of circulating cells expressing osteocalcin and bone alkaline phosphatase (OC + BAP + ) has procalcific activity in vitro and in vivo. (ahajournals.org)
