26771974 Uncarboxylated MGP in synovial fluid might serve as a novel biomarker for assessing knee osteoarthritis progression.
26040031 The association has been found between the ischemic atherothrombotic stroke and polymorphic variants of genes MGP and VKORC1.
25990696 MGP expression is significantly lower in diseased relative to normal aortic valve interstitial cells. Lack of this important "anti-calcification" protein may contribute to calcification of the aortic valve.
25987667 High levels of desphospho-uncarboxylated MGP are independently and positively associated with arterial stiffness after adjustment for common cardiovascular risk factors, renal function, and age.
25974989 MGP expression is impaired in patients with ankylosing spondylitis
25957430 Data shoed increased GAS6 and decreased MGP levels in hemodialysis patients, as mediators of induction or prevention of vascular calcification.
25871831 Altering NOTCH1 levels affected MGP mRNA and protein.
25528106 Higher plasma dephosphorylated uncarboxylated MGP (reflective of lower vitamin K status) was associated with higher odds of meniscus damage, osteophytes, bone marrow lesions, and subarticular cysts.
25458708 It is assumed that Lp-PLA2 is involved in vascular calcification and that dp-ucMGP is a more appropriate biomarker of residual risk than Lp-PLA2 itself.
25421980 Inactive nonphosphorylated and uncarboxylated matrix Gla protein levels were followed in a Flemish population. They correlated causally with non-cancer mortality and coronary events but not total cardiovascular mortality.
