MA1-20103 detects S100 in human samples.
MA1-20103 has been successfully used in ELISA and Western blot procedures.
The MA1-20103 immunogen is human S-100 protein.
S100 belongs to the family of calcium binding proteins such as calmodulin and troponin C. S100 proteins are localized in the cytoplasm and/or nucleus of a wide range of cells, and involved in the regulation of a number of cellular processes such as cell cycle progression and differentiation. S100 genes include at least 13 members which are located as a cluster on chromosome 1q21. S100A is composed of an alpha and beta chain whereas S100B is composed of two beta chains. S100 protein may function in stimulation of Ca2+ induced Ca2+ release, inhibition of microtubule assembly, and inhibition of protein kinase C mediated phosphorylation. Reduced expression of this protein has been implicated in cardiomyopathies. Immunoreactive S100 protein localizes in the cytoplasm and nuclei of astrocytes, Schwann's cells, ependymomas and astrogliomas.
