The effects of metal ion binding to pig brain S-100 proteins on the hydrophobicity of their cysteine (Cys) residues were examined using the fluorescent thiol reagent, <I>N</I>-(1-anilinonaphthyl-4)maleimide (ANM). The hydrophobicity order was Ca<SUP>2+</SUP>/S-100 < K<SUP>+</SUP>/S-100 < Mg<SUP>2+</SUP>/S-100 < S-100 < Zn<SUP>2+</SUP>/S-100.
