Abstract

© 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Vitamin K is essential, for the activation of clotting proteins, as well as the biosynthesis of osteocalcin in bones and the activation of matrix-Gla protein needed in maintaining vasculature health. Cytochrome p450 4F2 (CYP4F2) enzyme is involved in vitamin K catabolism. Genetic polymorphism in CYP4F2 is thus likely to affect vitamin K systemic availability. We show that children on chronic warfarin therapy have low levels of vitamin K and vitamin K levels are linked to CYP4F2 genotype. Long-term low levels of vitamin K, influenced by CYP4F2 genotype, might affect bone development and vascular health in children on chronic warfarin therapy.
