The annexins: spatial and temporal coordination of signaling events during cellular stress


Annexins are a family of structurally related, Ca2+-sensitive proteins that bind to negatively charged phospholipids and establish specific interactions with other lipids and lipid microdomains. They are present in all eukaryotic cells and share a common folding motif, the “annexin core”, which incorporates Ca2+- and membrane-binding sites. Annexins… (More)
