Gene Symbol BGLAP
Gene Full Name bone gamma-carboxyglutamate (gla) protein
Background This gene encodes a highly abundant bone protein secreted by osteoblasts that regulates bone remodeling and energy metabolism. The encoded protein contains a Gla (gamma carboxyglutamate) domain, which functions in binding to calcium and hydroxyapatite, the mineral component of bone. Serum osteocalcin levels may be negatively correlated with metabolic syndrome. Read-through transcription exists between this gene and the neighboring upstream gene, PMF1 (polyamine-modulated factor 1), but the encoded protein only shows sequence identity with the upstream gene product.

Function Constitutes 1-2% of the total bone protein. It binds strongly to apatite and calcium. [UniProt]
Research Area Developmental Biology antibody; Signaling Transduction antibody
Calculated MW 11 kDa
PTM Gamma-carboxyglutamate residues are formed by vitamin K dependent carboxylation. These residues are essential for the binding of calcium.
