 Title    Degree of Saturation of Blood Plasma in Vertebrates with Octocalcium Phosphate  
 Abstract    In previous papers it has been shown that octocalcium phospate OCP occurs in bone mineral of vertebrates. Although this compound is not stable, there is a continuous new-formation of OCP due to bone turnover. Literature data of the calcium and phosphate concentrations in the blood plasma of vertebrates were collected and the degree of saturation with OCP was calculated. The results show that blood plasma of vertebrates is almost saturated with OCP. This fact indicates that OCP is the solubility controlling phase in the mineral of vertebrates. Further it verifies the expectation based on physicochemical theory that the interaction between body fluids and bone mineral is important in the calcium and phosphate homeostasis.
