Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of human UCMA in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Target Data

Function May be involved in the negative control of osteogenic differentiation of osteochondrogenic precursor cells in peripheral zones of fetal cartilage and at the cartilage-bone interface.
Gene References into Functions
  1. GRP might act as a novel molecular mediator linking inflammation and calcification events PMID: 28542410
  2. The study demonstrates the involvement of GRP in the two major molecular processes affecting osteoarthritis: mineralization and inflammation of articular tissue. PMID: 26337479
  3. Data suggest that novel splice variants of GRP are expressed in cartilage and other tissues (i.e. GRP-F5, GRP-F6); GRP-F1 is predominant splice variant expressed in adult tissues particularly in cartilage of patients with osteoarthritis. PMID: 24867294
  4. full exon resequencing of DNA samples from 17 chronic kidney disease patients (stage 5) and 121 healthy controls in a Swsedish population; the 138Thr > Ser polymorphism seems to be the only non-synonymous SNP found in the UCMA gene in a Swedish population PMID: 24409676
  5. Gla-rich protein (GRP) is a new vitamin K-dependent protein that can bind calcium through Gla residues. PMID: 18836183
  6. The present data strongly suggest an important function of Ucma in the early phase of chondrocyte differentiation. PMID: 17707622
  7. Ucma may be involved in the negative control of osteogenic differentiation of osteochondrogenic precursor cells PMID: 18156182
