May function as calcium sensor and contribute to cellular calcium signaling (Potential). May function by interacting with other proteins and indirectly play a role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and in cell motility. Binds 2 calcium ions. Calcium binding is cooperative. Belongs to the S-100 family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
