Annexin 31 (ANXA9, ANX31)
Description:
The annexins are a family of calcium-dependent phospholipid-binding proteins. Annexin 31 cDNA encodes a 338-amino acid protein with less than 40% identity to other annexins. Members of the annexin family contain 4 internal repeat domains, each of which includes a type II calcium-binding site. The calcium-binding sites are required for annexins to aggregate and cooperatively bind anionic phospholipids and extracellular matrix proteins. The most striking feature of annexin 31 is a complete ablation of all four homologous type II calcium-binding sites in the conserved tetrad core. Although all 4 type II calcium-binding sites in annexin 31 contained amino acid substitutions that ablated their function, structural analysis suggests that the conserved putative ion channel formed by the tetrad core is intact.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:500
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
