Literature associating DMP1 and osteomalacia

DMP1 [ENSP00000340935]

Dentin matrix acidic phosphoprotein 1; May have a dual function during osteoblast differentiation. In the nucleus of undifferentiated osteoblasts, unphosphorylated form acts as a transcriptional component for activation of osteoblast-specific genes like osteocalcin. During the osteoblast to osteocyte transition phase it is phosphorylated and exported into the extracellular matrix, where it regulates nucleation of hydroxyapatite; SIBLING family
