release," Kidney International, vol.
In fact, recent research has shown that calcitriol accelerates matrix vesicle
formation in osteoblasts but only during the early phase of differentiation .
Notably, electron micrograph captures an osteoblast matrix vesicle
just as it initiated the exocytosis of hydroxyapatite (EDX spectrum).

in growth plate development and biomineralization," Frontiers in Bioscience, vol.
Biomineralization and matrix vesicles
in biology and pathology.
Because calcifiable vesicles may have a role in plaque calcification (38), much work has been done on phospholipid vesicles as substitutes of matrix vesicles
in simulative biomineralization research.
