The osteocalcin gene encodes a 6-kDa polypeptide, which represents one of the most abundant noncollagenous bone proteins, and the present studies establish that osteocalcin mRNA is detected only in bone tissue. An osteocalcin gene was isolated from a rat genomic DNA library, and sequence analysis indicated that the mRNA is represented in a 953-nucleotide… CONTINUE READING
