Vitamin K serving as a cofactor modulates calcification by activating calcification inhibitors such as matrix Gla protein (MGP); vascular vitamin K deficiency could therefore increase calcium deposition, leading to the occurrence of major adverse cardiovascular events. The current paper is mainly focused on two isoforms of MGP: desphospho-uncarboxylated MGP (dp-ucMGP) and desphospho-carboxylated MGP (dpcMGP). High levels of plasma dp-ucMGP are perceived as a proxy for vitamin K deficiency. As… Expand

Association of the Inactive Circulating Matrix Gla Protein with Vitamin K Intake, Calcification, Mortality, and Cardiovascular Disease: A Review
TLDR
This work aimed to review the existing data on the association between circulating dpucMGP and vascular calcification, renal function, mortality, and cardiovascular disease in distinct populations. Expand
Perspective: Evidence before Enthusiasm-A Critical Review of the Potential Cardiovascular Benefits of Vitamin K.
TLDR
Claims that menaquinones have unique cardiovascular health benefits compared with phylloquinone are not supported by the results of the limited number of intervention trials conducted to date. Expand
Vitamin K as a Powerful Micronutrient in Aging and Age-Related Diseases: Pros and Cons from Clinical Studies
TLDR
The clinical evidence and molecular aspects of vitamin K protective role in aging and age-related diseases, and its involvement as a modulator in the interplay between pathological calcification and inflammation processes are described and explored. Expand
Association of vitamin K with cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The findings showed that higher dietary vitamin K consumption was associated with a moderately lower risk of CHD, and higher plasma dp-ucMGP concentration, but not total circulating osteocalcin, wasassociated with increased risks of all-cause and CVD mortality. Expand
Vitamin K as a Diet Supplement with Impact in Human Health: Current Evidence in Age-Related Diseases
TLDR
The aim of this review is to update the reader regarding the specific contribution and effect of each K1 and K2 vitamers in human health, identify potential methods for its sustainable and cost-efficient production, and novel natural sources of vitamin K and formulations to improve absorption and bioavailability. Expand
The Role of Vitamin K in Humans: Implication in Aging and Age-Associated Diseases
TLDR
The review aimed to present the latest scientific evidence about vitamin K and its role in preventing age-associated diseases and/or improving the effectiveness of medical treatments in mature adults ˃50 years old. Expand
Association of dietary vitamin K and risk of coronary heart disease in middle-age adults: the Hordaland Health Study Cohort
TLDR
A higher intake of Vitamin K2 was associated with lower risk of CHD, while there was no association between intake of vitamin K1 and CHD. Expand
The Association of dp-ucMGP with Cardiovascular Morbidity and Decreased Renal Function in Diabetic Chronic Kidney Disease
TLDR
Investigation of the possible association of the inactive, dephosphorylated, uncarboxylated matrix Gla protein with oxidized low-density lipoprotein with Ox-LDL and all-cause/cardiovascular mortality and renal function in diabetic chronic kidney disease found Circulating dp-ucMGP is associated with mortality and decreased renalfunction in diabetic CKD. Expand
Vitamin K status and mobility limitation and disability in older adults: The Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study.
TLDR
The results suggest vitamin K may be involved in the disablement process in older age, and multivariate Cox proportional hazard models were used to evaluate the association between vitamin K status and incident mobility limitation and disability. Expand
Vitamin K2 Needs an RDI Separate from Vitamin K1
TLDR
Vitamin K2 meets all criteria for a bioactive substance recommended for an RDI and should be considered for a specific dietary recommendation intake, whereas the dietary form vitamin K1 has a shorter half-life. Expand

Circulating uncarboxylated matrix Gla protein, a marker of vitamin K status, as a risk factor of cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Vitamin K insufficiency, as assessed by high plasma dp-ucMGP concentrations is associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease independent of classical risk factors and vitamin D status. Expand
Circulating matrix Gla protein is associated with coronary artery calcification and vitamin K status in healthy women.
TLDR
Results show that dp-ucMGP may serve as a biomarker of vitamin K status, but these findings need to be confirmed. Expand
Circulating uncarboxylated matrix gla protein is associated with vitamin K nutritional status, but not coronary artery calcium, in older adults.
TLDR
Plasma ucMGP was associated with vitamin K status biomarkers and was reduced following phylloquinone supplementation, suggesting it may be a useful marker of vitamin Kstatus in vascular tissue in healthy older adults. Expand
High dietary menaquinone intake is associated with reduced coronary calcification.
TLDR
It is shown that high dietary menaquinone intake, but probably not phylloquinone, is associated with reduced coronary calcification and could therefore be important to prevent cardiovascular disease. Expand
Circulating Vitamin K Is Inversely Associated with Incident Cardiovascular Disease Risk among Those Treated for Hypertension in the Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study (Health ABC).
TLDR
Vitamin K status was not significantly associated with CVD risk overall, but low plasma phylloquinone was associated with a higher CVDrisk in older adults treated for hypertension, a segment of the population at high risk of clinical CVD events. Expand
A high menaquinone intake reduces the incidence of coronary heart disease.
TLDR
A high intake of menoquinones, especially MK-7, MK-8 and MK-9, could protect against CHD, however, more research is necessary to define optimal intake levels of vitamin K intake for the prevention of CHD. Expand
Dephosphorylated-uncarboxylated Matrix Gla protein concentration is predictive of vitamin K status and is correlated with vascular calcification in a cohort of hemodialysis patients
TLDR
The potential role of the inactive form of MGP was confirmed in assessing the vitamin K status of the HD patients and a significant correlation between dp-ucMGP concentration and the calcification score was observed. Expand
Matrix Gla Protein Species and Risk of Cardiovascular Events in Type 2 Diabetic Patients
TLDR
High dp-ucMGP levels were associated with increased CVD risk among type 2 diabetic patients, especially with the subtypes PAD and heart failure, while other MGP species were not related to CVDrisk. Expand
The effect of menaquinone-7 supplementation on circulating species of matrix Gla protein.
TLDR
Dp-ucMGP decreased significantly and dose-dependently in the 180 μg and 360 μg MK-7 supplementation groups after 12 weeks, and may serve as a non-invasive marker of vitamin K status, but does not affect other MGP species. Expand
Association of fibrinogen, C-reactive protein, albumin, or leukocyte count with coronary heart disease: meta-analyses of prospective studies.
TLDR
The published results from these prospective studies are remarkably consistent for each factor, indicating moderate but highly statistically significant associations with CHD, even though mechanisms that might account for these associations are not clear. Expand
