Recombinant Human S100A7 (Catalog # 9085-SA) induces IL-8secretion in A431 human epithelial carcinoma cells. The ED50 forthis effect is typically 2-10 μg/mL.
S100A7, also known as Psoriasin, is a 11-12 kDa member of the S100 family of EF hand calcium binding proteins (1). Human S100A7 shares 32% amino acid sequence identity with mouse S100A7A, the closest related protein in mouse (2). It is acetylated at the N-terminus and binds both calcium and zinc ions (3, 4). S100A7 is up-regulated in keratinocytes of psoriasis and atopic dermatitis lesions (5-9), as well as in epithelial cells of the tongue, eye, and female genital tract (10-12). Its up-regulation can be induced by bacterial exposure, inflammatory cytokines, or epidermal barrier disruption (3, 9, 11, 12). S100A7 supports epithelial integrity through killing E. coli by sequestration of zinc (3, 5) and through inducing the up-regulation of tight junction proteins (13). The interaction of S100A7 with RAGE promotes the migration of immune cells and the infiltration of macrophages into tumor sites (7, 14).
