3C1V: The 1.5 A Crystal structure of Ca2+-bound S100A4

S100A4 takes part in control of tumour cell migration and contributes to metastatic spread in in vivo models. In the active dimeric Ca(2+)-bound state it interacts with multiple intracellular targets. Conversely, oligomeric forms of S100A4 are linked with the extracellular function of this protein. We report the 1.5A X-ray crystal structure of Ca(2+)-bound S100A4 and use it to identify the residues involved in target recognition and to derive a model of the oligomeric state. We applied stopped-flow analysis of tyrosine fluorescence to derive kinetics of S100A4 activation by Ca(2+) (k(on)=3.5 microM(-1)s(-1), k(off)=20s(-1)).
