Antigenicity of pro-osteocalcin in hard tissue: The authenticity to visualize osteocalcin-producing cells


A polyclonal antibody against rat osteocalcin propeptide (anti-pro-OC) has been prepared and used in immunohistochemical studies to demonstrate cells expressing osteocalcin (OC). With the anti-pro-OC antibody, predominant immunoreaction was observed in cuboidal osteoblasts along the bone formation surface, and in odontoblasts and cementoblasts of the tooth… (More)
