Increasing evidence suggests that the small EF-hand calcium-binding protein S100B plays an important role in Alzheimer's disease.

The regulation of RAGE signaling by S100B is complex and probably involves other ligands including the amyloid beta peptide (Abeta), the Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs), or transtheyretin.
