Disease relevance of ANXA3


High impact information on ANXA3

  • Amino acid sequence of several peptides derived from the purified protein revealed that it is identical to lipocortin III, a recently described member of the annexin family that is scarce in other cells and tissues [6].
  • The structure of the gene indicates that different forms of PAP are produced by alternative splicing (PAPs I and II) or by competition between polyadenylation and splicing (PAP III) [7].
  • Annexin III, a putative inositol (1,2)-phosphohydrolase, was co-crystallized with inositol 2-phosphate, the inhibitor of the reaction, and its structure was solved to 1.95 A resolution [8].
  • Coupled with the fact that this is a particularly abundant phospholipid in granules specific to neutrophils, cells where annexin III is highly expressed, our finding could be pointing to a physiological role of annexin III [8].
  • The BIAcoreTM system used with different phospholipids showed that annexin III displays specificity for phosphatidylethanolamine, but not for phosphatidylinositols [8].

Biological context of ANXA3


Anatomical context of ANXA3


Associations of ANXA3 with chemical compounds

  • In this study, three additional anticoagulant proteins (PAP-II, PAP-III, and PAP-IV) were simultaneously isolated from human placental homogenates prepared in the presence of 5 mM ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid [13].
  • Local recurrent androgen ablation therapy-resistant tumours exhibit heterogenous low levels of ANXA3 staining [2].
  • The most differentially abundant proteins between cancer and benign samples were isopeptidase T, serum amyloid P (SAP), annexin A3 (ANXA3) and mitochondrial enoyl coenzyme-A hydratase [2].
  • Our studies clearly show that cyclic inositol phosphohydrolase and annexin III are two different proteins [11].
  • The tryptophan in the calcium loop of the third domain is exposed to the solvent, as in the structure of annexin V crystallized in high calcium concentrations, although the annexin III crystals were prepared at low calcium concentrations [14].

Physical interactions of ANXA3


Regulatory relationships of ANXA3

  • Taken together, our results suggest that ANXA3 is a novel angiogenic factor that induces VEGF production through the HIF-1 pathway [9].
