Pathological calcification of soft tissues as the case of vascular calcification is characterized by the deposition of hydroxyapaptite induced by matrix vesicles at least in the initial stage as in the case of physiological calcification in skeletal tissues. Lipid metabolism is involved in the differentiation of smooth muscle cells and bone cells suggesting that phospholipases can modulat...
