Osteocalcin

Osteocalcin (OC, BGLAP, BGP, OCN), also known as bone gamma-carboxyglutamic acid-containing protein, is found in bone and dentin. Osteocalcin is produced and secreted by osteoblasts. Osteocalcin regulates mineralization in the bones and teeth. It has been shown that osteocalcin can also affect adiposity and glucose homeostasis. Osteocalcin can also act as a hormone causing the pancreas to release insulin, and at the same time directing adipocytes to release adiponectin, which increases sensitivity to insulin. High serum osteocalcin levels have been associated with increases in bone mineral density, making osteocalcin a noninvasive specific marker of bone metabolism.
