Mts1 is a member of the S100 family of Ca2+-binding proteins and is implicated in promoting tumor progression and metastasis. To better understand the structure-function relationships of this protein and to begin characterizing its Ca2+-dependent interaction with protein binding targets, the three-dimensional structure of mts1 was determined in the apo(More)
In addition to binding Ca(2+), the S100 protein S100B binds Zn(2+) with relatively high affinity as confirmed using isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC; K(d) = 94 +/- 17 nM). The Zn(2+)-binding site on Ca(2+)-bound S100B was examined further using NMR spectroscopy and site-directed mutagenesis. Specifically, ITC measurements of S100B mutants (helix 1,(More)
