S100A12(redirected from CAAF1)
S100A12A gene on chromosome 1q21 that encodes a member of the S100 family of proteins, which contain 2 EF-hand calcium-binding motifs and as a group regulate cell cycle progression and differentiation and other cellular processes. The S100A12-encoded protein may be involved in calcium-dependent signal transduction pathways; its regulatory effect on cytoskeletal components may modulate neutrophil activities and trigger the release of cytokines.
