Little is known about the function of the non-collagenous proteins in the organic matrix of bone. Information about these proteins was obtained from studies of human cortical bone. Analysis of fractions of bone differing in density showed that 96% of the alpha 2HS-glycoprotein and 58% of the albumin was associated with the mineralized phase. A study of age… CONTINUE READING
