Human S100B (Fc Tag) recombinant protein
S100B is a member of the S100 family of proteins containing two EF-hand-type calcium-binding motifs. S100B exerts both intracellular and extracellular functions. Intracellular S100B acts as a stimulator of cell proliferation and migration and an inhibitor of apoptosis and differentiation, which might have important implications during brain, cartilage and skeletal muscle development and repair, activation of astrocytes in the course of brain damage and neurodegenerative processes, and of cardiomyocyte remodeling after infarction, as well as in melanomagenesis and gliomagenesis. As an extracellular factor, S100B engages RAGE (receptor for advanced glycation end products) in a variety of cell types with different outcomes (i.e. beneficial or detrimental, pro-proliferative or pro-differentiative) depending on the concentration attained by the protein, the cell type and the microenvironment. This calcium binding astrocyte-specific cytokine, presents a marker of astrocytic activation and reflects CNS injury. The excellent sensitivity of S100B has enabled it to confirm the existence of subtle brain injury in patients with mild head trauma, strokes, and after successful resuscitation from cardiopulmonary arrest. Recent findings provide evidence, that S100B may decrease neuronal injury and/or contribute to repair following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Hence, S100B, far from being a negative determinant of outcome, as suggested previously in the human TBI and ischemia literature, is of potential therapeutic value that could improve outcome in patients who sustain various forms of acute brain damage.

S100-B; NEF; S100B; S100BETA; AI850290; S100; BPB; MGC74317
A DNA sequence encoding the human S100B (NP_006263.1) (Ser 2-Glu 92) was expressed with the fused Fc region of human IgG1 at the N-terminus.
The recombinant human Fc/S100B is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer consists of 328 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 37.2 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of rhFc/S100B monomer is approximately 40 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
