S100A4 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 121 amino acids (1-101) and having a molecular mass of 13.8 kDa.The S100A4 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
S100A4 is part of the S100 super-family of proteins containing 2 EF-hand calcium binding domains. S100A4 is ubiquitously overexpressed and is localized in the cytoplasm and/or nucleus. S100A4 is involved in motility, invasion, and tubulin polymerization. Chromosomal rearrangements and altered expression of the S100A4 gene have been implicated in tumor metastasis.
