The S100A4 protein belongs to the S100 subfamily, which has grown to be one of the largest subfamilies of the EF-hand Ca2+-binding proteins. The S100 proteins are small (10-12 kD), acidic proteins sharing 25-65% sequence homology. A majority of the S100 genes cluster on human chromosome 1q21. The discovery of this cluster has provided the basis for a new nomenclature for S100 proteins encoded by genes in the 1q21 region. These proteins are now designated S100A1-S100A13. In immunoblotting analysis using recombinant S100 proteins (S100A1, S100A2, S100A4, S100A6 and S100B) only the corresponding antigen (S100A4) was recognized. No cross-reaction with the other S100 proteins was observed.
