The S-100 family of calcium-binding proteins includes about 20 members of low molecular weight characterized by two consecutive EF hands domains. They make interactions with cellular target proteins in a calcium-dependent manner; therefore they are thought to regulate a variety of physiological functions, such as cell proliferation, signal transduction, cell adhesion, motility as well as cancer metastasis.
