Description

Osteocalcin is the most abundant non-collagenous protein found in the bone. While fully-carboxylated osteocalcin has a high affinity for the extracellular matrix of the bone; decreases in pH, caused by the process of bone resorption, result in decarboxylation of this protein. This generates both partially decarboxylated (undercarboxylated) and fully decarboxylated (uncarboxylated) osteocalcin molecules which are released into the circulation due to decreased affinity for the extracellular matrix. Fully carboxylated osteocalcin requires high calcium concentrations for proper protein folding; however, under/uncarboxylated osteocalcin has no calcium requirement to maintain its structure within the blood.

Application

ELISA Detection - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For ELISA Detection applications, a concentration range of 1.0 - 4.0 µg/mL is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of Human Uncarboxylated Osteocalcin recombinant protein (Cat. No. 446709) ranging from 37.5 to 2400 pg/mL is recommended for each ELISA plate. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

The biotinylated 4B6 antibody (Cat. No. 538304) is useful as the detection antibody in a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with the pure 8H4 antibody (Cat. No. 538202) as the capture antibody and Human Uncarboxylated Osteocalcin synthetic peptide as the ELISA Std. (Cat. No. 446709).

RRID
AB_2888711 (BioLegend Cat. No. 538304)

Antigen Details

Structure
Monomer
Distribution

It is produced by osteoblasts as a 49 amino acid protein, which contains 3 glutamine acid residues (Glu 17, 21, and 24) that are gamma carboxylated in a vitamin K dependent manner.

Function
Under/uncarboxylated forms act as hormones promoting β-cell proliferation, adiponectin secretion, insulin sensitivity, glucose tolerance, and testosterone biosynthesis. In patients with diabetes, reduced serum levels of osteocalcin are negatively correlated with obesity and insulin resistance. Furthermore, supporting studies in mice have suggested potential therapeutic applications for osteocalcin in both obesity and insulin resistance.
Interaction
GPRC6A, insulin, pancreatic β-cells, Ley-dig cells, adiponectin
Ligand/Receptor
Under/uncarboxylated forms can bind the receptor GPCR6a, calcium, and metal-binding.
