protein S100-A1


S-100 protein derived from brain tissue is an acidic calcium-binding protein with molecular weight of about 21kDa. In human brain tissue S-100 protein is mainly presented as two isoforms - bb homodimer (S-100b) and ab heterodimer (S-100a). Because of its predominant location in astroglial cells S-100 protein can be used as a sensitive and reliable marker for central nervous system injury. Structural damage of glial cells causes leakage of S-100 protein into the extracellular matrix and into cerebrospinal fluid, further releasing into the bloodstream. Measurements of S-100 protein in patient serum samples are useful in monitoring of traumatic brain injury, ischemic brain damage after circulatory arrests, and in diagnosis and prognosis of clinical outcome in acute stroke. Although predominant among the water-soluble brain proteins, S-100 is also found in a variety of other tissues. S-100 is an intracellular protein that weakly binds calcium. It binds zinc very tightly, however, and this appears to increase the affinity of the protein for calcium. Distinct binding sites, with different affinities, exist for both ions on each monomer. Physiological concentrations of potassium ion antagonize the binding of both divalent cations, especially affecting high-affinity calcium-binding sites.

Western blot using GeneTex's Affinity Purified anti-S-100 antibody shows detection of a band ~11 kDa corresponding to bovine S-100 monomer (100 μg loaded, arrowhead lane 1). The antibody also detects S-100 from rat brain lysate (lane 2). Approximately 35 μg of a rat brain whole cell lysate was separated by 16% SDS-PAGE and transferred onto nitrocellulose. After blocking, the membrane was probed with the primary antibody diluted to 1:1,000 for 2h at room temperature followed by washes and reaction with a 1:10,000 dilution of IRDye™800 conjugated goat anti-Rabbit IgG [H&L] for 45 min at room temperature. IRDye™800 fluorescence image was captured using the Odyssey® Infrared Imaging System developed by LI-COR. IRDye is a trademark of LI-COR, Inc. Other detection systems will yield similar results.

Rabbit anti-S-100 protein was used at a 1:500 dilution to detect S-100 by immunohistochemistry using a 2-step indirect method. Dark nuclear staining is observed within basket cells located near the Purkinje cells in the cerebellum. Mouse brain tissue was immersed for 24 hours in 10% neutral buffered formalin and paraffin processed followed by sectioning at 4 microns. No antigen unmasking (HIER) or protease digestion was performed prior to immunostaining. Sections were deparaffinized in xylene, and hydrated through graded alcohol to distilled water. All incubations were done at room temperature. All rinses were either distilled water or Tris-HCl with 0.05% Tween 20. Endogenous peroxidase activity was blocked with 3% Hydrogen peroxide for 10'. Primary antibody was diluted as stated and reacted for 30' followed by washes and the addition of donkey anti-rabbit HRP diluted 1:500 for 30'. DAB+ (Dakocytomation) was used as a substrate and was allowed to react for 5'.
