S100A16 Calcium-binding protein. Binds one calcium ion per monomer. Can promote differentiation of adipocytes (in vitro). Overexpression in preadipocytes increases their proliferation, enhances adipogenesis and reduces insulin-stimulated glucose uptake. Belongs to the S-100 family. Ubiquitous (PubMed:14684152). Highly expressed in esophagus, adipose tissues and colon. Expressed at lower level in lung, brain, pancreas and skeletal muscle. Expression is up-regulated in tumors of bladder, lung, thyroid gland, pancreas and ovary (PubMed:14684152). Expressed in astrocytes (PubMed:17030513).
