Protein-bound gamma-carboxyglutamate (Gla) has been demonstrated in calcified atherosclerotic plaques. Vitamin K is required for the formation of Gla-residues. As the biological activity of Gla-proteins appears to be strictly dependent on the presence of the Gla-residues, vitamin K status may be an important factor in the development and progression of atherosclerotic calcifications. We studied the association of vitamin K status, as assessed by nutritional vitamin K intake and the measurements… CONTINUE READING
