  Domain Name: calgranulins
Calgranulins: S-100 domain found in proteins belonging to the Calgranulin subgroup of the S100 family of EF-hand calcium-modulated proteins, including S100A8, S100A9, and S100A12 . Note that the S-100 hierarchy, to which this Calgranulin group belongs, contains only S-100 EF-hand domains, other EF-hands have been modeled separately. These proteins are expressed mainly in granulocytes, and are involved in inflammation, allergy, and neuritogenesis, as well as in host-parasite response. Calgranulins are modulated not only by calcium, but also by other metals such as zinc and copper. Structural data suggested that calgranulins may exist in multiple structural forms, homodimers, as well as hetero-oligomers. For example, the S100A8/S100A9 complex called calprotectin plays important roles in the regulation of inflammatory processes, wound repair, and regulating zinc-dependent enzymes as well as microbial growth.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
