annexin 5

annexin 5

A member of a highly conserved protein family that bind acidic phospholipids in a calcium-dependent manner and help flag cells destined for apoptotic death by phagocytes. Annexin 5 has a high affinity for phosphatidylserine and is transported from the inner to the outer face of the plasma membrane, where cells undergo death by apoptosis or cell necrosis. It has known anticoagulant properties and, like lactadherin, has high-affinity, PS-dependent membrane-binding-like factor VIII and factor V.

Antibodies against Annexin 1 (BD, diluted 1: 1000), Annexin 2 (BD, diluted 1:1000), Annexin 5 (Cell Signaling, diluted 1: 1000), and Annexin 6 (BD, diluted 1: 1000) and secondary antibodies HRP IgG (Multisciences, diluted 1: 5000) were used.
The expression patterns of Annexin 1, Annexin 2, Annexin 5, and Annexin 6 were detected in MeT-5A cells after MWCNT treatments in our study.
Annexin 5 knockdown also resulted in significantly reduced proliferation, migration, invasion, and in situ lymph node adhesion potentials of hepatocarcinoma Hca-F cells in proportion to its knockdown extent [38].
