Annexin A6, also known as ANXA6 or ANXAⅥ, belongs to a family of Ca2+-dependent membrane and phospholipid binding proteins. Members of this family have been implicated in membrane-related events along exocytotic and endocytotic pathways. Annexin 6 is phosphorylated in vivo associated with cell growth. Annexin 6 was not phosphorylated in quiescent cells, but was phosphorylated on serine and to a lesser extent threonine, several hours following cell stimulation. Experiment has revealed the presence of annexin A6 on the cell surface of variety cells as putative receptors and / or binding proteins for chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans, helping cells to bind with this extracellular matrix glycosaminoglycan chondroitin sulfate which is related to the cell-substratum adhesion. A post-tranlational modification other than direct protein phosphorylation may influence the activity of annexin6 and provide evidence linking cell growth with regulation of annexin 6 function.
