|Protein Name||Protein S100-A12|
|Ref Sequence Id||NP_777076.1|
|Amino Acid Lenth||92|
|Protein Existence Status||Reviewed: Experimental evidence at protein level|
|Presence in other biological fluids/tissue/cells||neutrophils, monocytes, smooth muscle cells;|
|Protein Function||important mediators in many different cellular functions involving immunity, inflammation, cell proliferation, apoptosis and other activities; expression of S100A12 increased at some cases of human inflammatory diseases; modulate interactions between cytoskeletal elements and membranes; inhibits aggregation of aldolase and GAPDH and may have Ca2+-dependent chaperone/anti-chaperone-like functions; play a role in vascular remodeling|
|Biochemical Properties||calcium binding proteins; hinge domain are chemotactic for monocytes and mast cells; presence of a pseudo‐EF‐hand calcium‐binding site|
|Significance in milk||S100A12 was positively associated with the somatic cell count and the sodium and chloride concentrations of milk; a negative correlation was found between S100A12 and the potassium concentration and pH of milk; S100A12 level in milk may serve as a diagnostic tool for subclinical mastitis in cows without obvious clinical signs|
