Product Introduction: S100A6 is a member of the S100 family of proteins containing 2 EF-hand calcium-binding motifs. S100 proteins are localized either in the cytoplasm or the nucleus of a wide range of cells. S100 proteins are involved in the regulation of a number of cellular processes such as cell cycle progression and differentiation. There are at least 13 members in the S100 gene family, which are located as a cluster on chromosome 1q21. S100A6 may function in stimulation of Ca2+-dependent insulin release, stimulation of prolactin secretion, and exocytosis. Chromosomal rearrangements and altered expression of the S100A6 gene are implicated in melanoma.
Product Description: S100A6 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 109 amino acids (1-89 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 12.2kDa. S100A6 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
