This is a purified rabbit anti-human S100A16 Polyclonal Antibody, that can be used in the validated applications of ELISA, and immunohistochemistry. This S100A16 Polyclonal Antibody was produced in rabbits immunized with purified, recombinant human S100A16. S100A16 specific IgG was purified by human S100A16 affinity chromatograpy.
Antibody characteristics include:
Applications: This S100A16 Polyclonal Antibody, has been validated for use in ELISA, and immunohistochemistry Host species and isotype: This is a rabbit Polyclonal IgG against human S100A16 Immunogen: Recombinant human S100A16 protein Product size: 100 µg
S100A16, a EF-hand Ca (2+)-binding protein, is a new and unique member of the S100 protein super family. Its expression is ubiquitous and elevated in various types of tumors. S100 proteins are cell- and tissue-specific and are involved in many intra- and extracellular processes through interacting with specific target proteins. Differently from most S100 proteins, the conformational rearrangement upon calcium binding of S100A6 is minor. Its expression was found to be astrocyte-specific. The S100A16 protein was found to accumulate within nucleoli and to translocate to the cytoplasm in response to Ca (2+) stimulation. Calcium binding proteins of the S100 family play a central role in many intra- and extracellular processes and abnormal expression was observed in various tumors and human diseases. Immunoprecipitation analysis revealed that S100A16 could physically interact with tumor suppressor protein p53, also a known inhibitor of adipogenesis. Overexpression or RNA interference-initiated reduction of S100A16 led to the inhibition or activation of the expression of p53-responsive genes, respectively. S100A16 protein is a novel adipogenesis-promoting factor and that increased expression of S100A16 in 3T3-L1 adipocytes can have a negative impact on insulin sensitivity.
