Studies on bone sialoprotein have suggested that one or both of the proteins glutamic acid-rich sequences are involved in promoting the nucleation of HAP (29), whereas the phosphate and carboxylate groups of osteopontin, possibly including the conserved sequence of contiguous aspartic acid residues, may be required for the proteins inhibitive effect on HAP formation (26).
