Warfarin and Vascular Calcification.
Boston, United States. In Am J Med, Jan 2016
This increase in vascular calcification is due to inhibition of the enzyme matrix gamma-carboxyglutamate gla protein (MGP).
The role of carbonic anhydrase in the pathogenesis of vascular calcification in humans.
Ferrol, Spain. In Atherosclerosis, Jul 2015
In human tissues, carbonic anhydrase is implicated in calcification processes either directly by facilitating calcium carbonate deposition which in turn serves to facilitate calcium phosphate mineralization, or indirectly via its action upon γ-glutamyl-carboxylase, a carboxylase that enables the biological activation of proteins involved in calcification, such as matrix Gla protein, bone Gla protein, and Gla-rich protein.
