UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for S100A16 Gene
Calcium-binding protein. Binds one calcium ion per monomer (PubMed:17030513). Can promote differentiation of adipocytes (in vitro) (By similarity). Overexpression in preadipocytes increases their proliferation, enhances adipogenesis and reduces insulin-stimulated glucose uptake (By similarity).
