Plasma bone Gla protein concentrations in healthy adults. Dependence on sex, age, and glomerular filtration.

Abstract

Plasma bone Gla protein (BGP) was determined by radio-immunoassay in 266 healthy adults, men (n = 132) and women (n = 134), aged 20-79 years. In the women aged 30-69 years, plasma BGP increased significantly with age (r = 0.44, p less than 0.001), and a particularly steep increase was seen from 1.1 +/- 0.5 (mean +/- 1 SD) in the fifth decade to 2.0 +/- 1.4… (More)
