Annexin 3 is associated with cytoplasmic granules in neutrophils and monocytes and translocates to the plasma membrane in activated cells.


Annexins are soluble proteins capable of binding to phospholipid membranes in a calcium-dependent manner. Annexin 3, a 33 kDa protein mainly expressed in neutrophils, aggregates granules in cell-free assays, and a 36 kDa variant of this protein, specifically expressed in monocytes, has recently been identified. To obtain further information on these… (More)
