Abstract

The S-100 family of calcium-binding proteins includes about 20 members of low molecularweight characterized by two consecutive EF hands domains. They make interactions withcellular target proteins in a calcium-dependent manner; therefore they are thought toregulate a variety of physiological functions, such as cell proliferation, signal transduction,cell adhesion, motility as well as cancer metastasis.
