Stability and Storage
Shipped at 4°C. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
Constituents: 30% Glycerol, 0.1M Sodium chloride, 20mM Tris HCl, 1mM DTT, pH 8.0
S-100 protein alpha chain
S-100 protein subunit alpha
Function Weakly binds calcium but binds zinc very tightly-distinct binding sites with different affinities exist for both ions on each monomer. Physiological concentrations of potassium ion antagonize the binding of both divalent cations, especially affecting high-affinity calcium-binding sites.
Tissue specificity Highly prevalent in heart. Also found in lesser quantities in skeletal muscle and brain.
Sequence similarities Belongs to the S-100 family. Contains 2 EF-hand domains.
Cellular localization Cytoplasm.
