A gene on chromosome 5q33.1 that encodes annexin 6, a calcium-dependent phospholipid-binding protein implicated in membrane-related events along exo- and endocytotic pathways.

On performing Gene Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA), it was found that platelet activation and growth as well as hemostasis were the most significantly enriched gene sets in low BMD condition, while Weighted Gene Coexpression Network Analysis (WGCNA) revealed that Annexin family genes including ANXA1, ANXA2, ANXA5, and ANXA6 were upregulated in low BMD condition [40].
The other calcium-binding proteins in this cluster, annexin A2 (Anxa2) and annexin A6 (Anxa6), are not reported to have such a relationship to fibrosis, but as calcium-binding proteins, and it is interesting to observe that they are increased in expression in the same manner as calcyclin.
