Osteoprotegerin (OPG) is a recently identified cytokine that acts as a decoy receptor for the receptor activator of nuclear factor I masculine B ligand. Osteoprotegerin has been shown to be an important inhibitor of osteoclastogenesis and arterial calcification in animal models. Recently, OPG has been proposed as a link molecule between osteoporosis and arterial calcification, but the relationship between circulating OPG levels and cardiovascular disease in human populations is unclear.
