Resumo: Matrix Gla protein (mgp), a vitamin K-dependent protein, is an important element of skeleton development as it regulates mineralization of both cartilaginous and bony structures, among others. Although mgp is found in a wide range of tissues, it is known to be expressed mostly by chondrocytes and vascular smooth muscle cells. Accordingly, inhibition of Mgp function results in over-mineralization of cartilages and growth plates and in ectopic mineralizations, particularly in the vascular system. Besides being a well characterized protein and the existence of developmental studies in zebrafish, there is still no description of monitoring mgp expression in live specimens.
