The aim of this study was to investigate the response to and the physiological consequences of copper-mediated cross-linking of S100A2 and S100A4, two members of the S100 family of EF-hand calcium-binding proteins. As demonstrated by electrophoresis and mass spectrometry techniques S100A2 and S100A4 show formation of cross-links due to copper-mediated oxidation of cysteine residues. For S100A4, but not for S100A2, this results in both increased activation of NFκB and secretion of TNF-α in human A375 and, to a higher extent, in RAGE-transfected melanoma cells. The data suggest that a prooxidative tumor microenvironment enhances proinflammatory and prometastatic action of S100A4.
