Matrix Gla protein (MGP) is an extracellular mineral-binding protein expressed in several tissues but it only accumulates in bone and calcified cartilage under physiological conditions. Available evidence indicates that it acts as a physiological inhibitor of mineralization. Runx2 is a transcription factor essential for bone formation in mammals, affecting(More)
GRP is a vitamin K-dependent protein with orthologs in all vertebrate taxonomic groups and two paralogs in teleosts. However, no data is available about GRP transcriptional gene regulation. We report a functional promoter for zebrafish grp2 gene regulated by Sox9b, Sox10, Ets1 and Mef2ca as determined by in vitro assays. This was confirmed in vivo for Sox9b(More)
