Introduction

Osteoprotegerin acts as decoy receptor for rankl and thereby neutralizes its function in osteoclastogenesis. OPG inhibits the activation of osteoclasts and promotes osteoclast apoptosis in vitro. Bone homeostasis seems to depend on the local rankl/opg ratio. Osteoprotegerin may also play a role in preventing arterial calcification. May act as decoy receptor for trail and protect against apoptosis. Trail binding blocks the inhibition of osteoclastogenesis.

Description

Recombinant Osteoprotegerin produced in baculovirus is a signle, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 398 amino acid residues (22-401 a.a.), having a calculated molecular mass of 45.6 kDa. The Osteoprotegerin is fused to a 17 amino acid His tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
