In this report, we have characterized the interaction of heparin with the Ca2+- and phospholipid-binding protein annexin II tetramer (AIIt). Analysis of the circular dichroism spectra demonstrated that the Ca2+-dependent binding of AIIt to heparin caused a large decrease in the alpha-helical content of AIIt from approximately 44 to 31%, a small decrease in(More)
Fucoidan, a sulfated fucopolysaccharide, mimics the fucosylated glycans of glycoproteins and has therefore been used as a probe for investigating the role of membrane polysaccharides in cell-cell adhesion. In the present report we have characterized the interaction of fucoidan with the Ca(2+)- and phospholipid-binding protein annexin II tetramer (AIIt).(More)
