and S100A9 activate MAP kinase and NF-[kappa]B signaling pathways and trigger translocation of RAGE in human prostate cancer cells.
Antibodies against S100A8
(ab180735) and S100A9 (ab63818) were from Abcam (Cambridge, UK).

From the perspective of the whole blood transcriptome, the gene expression levels ofMMP8, ANXA1, S100A8
, and S100P have been previously shown to be up-regulated during pregnancy (15, 16) and some of these immune-related genes have been demonstrated as biomarkers for pregnancy complications.
After the pre-separated plasma samples were retrieved and thawed at room temperature, the IL-6, S100A9, and S100A8
protein levels were detected by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) following the manufacturer's instructions (IL-6: eBioscience, USA; S100A8
and S100A9: CycLex, Japan).
can be used as prognostic and diagnostic biomarker because of its overexpression observed in MHCC-97H and Huh-7 cell lines .

and IL-8 in diabetic wounds could lead to unresolved inflammation in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) cases with impaired wound healing," Journal of Diabetes and its Complications, vol.
In addition to activation of the prostaglandin axis, PPAR[delta] increases expression of the acute phase proteins Saal, Saa2, S100a8
, and S100a9, as well as several members of the kallikrein gene family , all of which are elevated in [ER.sup.+] breast cancer [59, 60] and whose promoter regions contain PPREs.
Several genes including genes coding proteins associated with response to microbes and phagocytosis (S100A8
, S100A10, LYZ, CD 14, CD93) and processing and presentation of antigens linked to MHC class II molecules (CD74, IFI30, HLA-DR paralogues) were found to be highly expressed in intermediate monocytes as compared to non-classical monocytes.
Calprotectin is a calcium and zinc binding protein complex formed by S100A8
and S100A9 proteins.
(calgranulin A or migration inhibitory factor-related protein-8 (MRP-8)) and its binding partner S100A9 (calgranulin B or MRP-14) are two members of a multigenic family of cytoplasmic Ca2+-binding proteins .
The HGNC approved names of genes encoding for MRP8 and MRP14 are S100A8
and S100A9, respectively.
