S100A2 in Human Prostate. S100A2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human prostate using Mouse Anti-Human S100A2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB48701) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei in epithelial, smooth muscle and stromal cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

S100A2 (also S100L and CaN19) is a 10 kDa member of the S100 family, EF-hand superfamily of Ca-binding proteins. It is expressed by multiple cell types, including keratinocytes, chondrocytes, and bronchial epithelium. S100A2 regulates both Ca and Zn (in human) within cells, and increases p53 activity. It forms both noncovalent and covalent homodimers, and a homotetramer under certain conditions. Human S100A2 is 98 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains two EF-hand motifs (aa 13-48 and 51-86) plus a calcium (aa 64-75) and zinc (aa 17-22) binding site. There is one potential alternative splice form that shows a 40 aa insertion after Gly48. Full-length human S100A2 shares 89% and 85% aa identity with bovine and canine S100A2, respectively.
