S100P Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated,polypeptide chain containing 115 amino acids(1-95a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 12.6 kDa. S100P protein is fused to a 20 amino acid His tag at N-terminus and is purified by standard chromatography.
S100P is a Ca2+ binding protein that is part of the S100 family of proteins containing 2 EF-hand calcium-binding motifs. S100 proteins are found in the cytoplasm and/or nucleus of a large range of cells, and participates in the regulation of a number of cellular function such as cell cycle progression and differentiation. S100P participates in numerous biological functions but the exact functions or mechanism of its action is still mostly unknown. Once S100P binds calcium ions it goes throµgh a conformational change that results in an exposure of a hydrophobic surface which permits the interaction with specific target proteins.
