Knowledge accumulated over the past 15 years on plant annexins clearly indicates that this disparate group of proteins builds on the common annexin function of membrane association, but possesses divergent molecular mechanisms. Functionally, the current literature agrees on a key role of plant annexins in stress response processes such as wound healing and(More)
Annexins are a family of calcium- and membrane-binding proteins that are important for plant tolerance to adverse environmental conditions. Annexins function to counteract oxidative stress, maintain cell redox homeostasis, and enhance drought tolerance. In the present study, an endogenous annexin, STANN1, was overexpressed to determine whether crop yields(More)
Annexins are an evolutionary conserved superfamily of proteins able to bind membrane phospholipids in a calcium-dependent manner. Their physiological roles are still being intensively examined and it seems that, despite their general structural similarity, individual proteins are specialized toward specific functions. However, due to their general ability(More)
