- Protein I,
- Annexin A2,
ANXA2, a member of the annexin family, is a calcium-dependent phospholipid-binding protein that plays a role in the regulation of cellular growth and in signal transduction pathways. Its affinity for calcium is greatly enhanced by anionic phospholipids, and it binds two calcium ions with high affinity. ANXA2 may be involved in heat-stress response. This protein functions as an autocrine factor which heightens osteoclast formation and bone resorption. It may also cross-link plasma membrane phospholipids with actin and the cytoskeleton and be involved with exocytosis.
