ANXA8 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a signle, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 347 amino acids (1-327 a.a.)and having a total molecular mass of 39 kDa. ANXA8 is fused to a 20 amino acid His Tag at N-terminus and is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
ANXA8 is part of the annexin family of evolutionarily conserved Ca2+ and phospholipid binding proteins. ANXA8 is an anticoagulant protein that functions as an indirect inhibitor of the thromboplastin-specific complex, which takes part in the blood coagulation cascade. Where co-expressed in the same tissues, ANXA8 is expressed at a 100-fold lower level than Annexin A5. Thoµgh, ANXA8 is preferentially expressed in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) cells which sµggests its involvement in hematopoietic cell differentiation.
