S100A4 (Protein S100-A4, Calvasculin, Metastasin, Placental Calcium-binding Protein, Protein Mts1, S100 Calcium-binding Protein A4, CAPL, MTS1)
Description:
S100 Calcium Binding Protein A4 (S100A4) is a member of the S100 family of proteins containing 2 EF-hand calcium-binding motifs. 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. S100A4 may function in motility, invasion, and tubulin polymerization. Chromosomal rearrangements and altered expression of this gene have been implicated in tumor metastasis.
