What is it about?

S100A16 belongs to the Ca2+ binding protein. We have shown that it can promote the chemoresistance of bladder cancer based on chemoresistant cell line. This may be related to its anti-apoptosis effect.

Why is it important?

Our findings show that S100A16 can promote the chemoresistance of nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer through anti-apoptosis pathway, thus providing a new strategy to prevent or reverse the bladder cancer chemoresistance.


Proteomics is a great tool to find significant markers. However, it needs to be verified using experimental methods. The relationship between S100A16 and chemoresistance was discovered occasionally. It's exited for me to find and prove it, though the mechanisms were not studied deeply. I hope you find this article thought-provoking.
