Recombinant proteins for S100 calcium binding protein A8 are available from various sources. In humans, this protein has a Uniprot ID of P05109 and has an annotated function: 'S100A8 is a calcium- and zinc-binding protein which plays a prominent role in the regulation of inflammatory processes and immune response.' This protein is 93 amino acids in length and 10.9 kilodaltons in mass. It has been designated a subcellular localization as: cytoplasmic, secreted, cell membrane. This protein is encoded by the gene S100A8. Other names also exist, such as: protein S100-A8, calgranulin A, calprotectin L1L subunit, cystic fibrosis antigen, leukocyte L1 complex light chain, migration inhibitory factor-related protein 8, urinary stone protein band A. This protein is conserved in other species, including: mouse, rat, chimpanzee, guinea pig.
