New perspectives on S100 proteins: a multi-functional Ca 2+ -, Zn 2+ - and Cu 2+ -binding protein family

Abstract

S100 proteins (16 members) show a very divergent pattern of cell- and tissue-specific expression, of subcel-lular localizations and relocations, of post-translational modifications, and of affinities for Ca 2+ , Zn 2+ , and Cu 2+ , consistent with their pleiotropic intra- and extracellular functions. Up to 40 target proteins are reported to interact with… (More)
