General description

Monoclonal Anti-S100A6 (Calcyclin) (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the CACY-100 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from an immunized mouse. S100 calcium-binding protein A6 is mapped to human chromosome 1q21.3. S100A6 has been shown to possess 43-47% homology with S-100α, S-100β, and S100A2 (S100L).


Recognizes an epitope located on S100A6 (Calcyclin in the old terminology) in a Ca2+ ion-dependent manner. The product does not react with other members of the EF-hand family such as calmodulin, parvalbumin, intestinal calcium-binding protein, S100A2 (S100L), caltropin, the α chain of S-100 (i.e. in S-100a and S-100ao), or the β chain (i.e. in S-100a and S-100b).

Biochem/physiol Actions

S-100 proteins are calcium-modulated proteins that bind calcium and zinc ions reversibly at physiologic pH and ionic strength, followed by a conformational change in the molecule. S100A6 along with other S100 family proteins bindsprotein phosphatase 5(PP5) in a calcium-dependent manner.
