Simultaneous membrane binding of Annexin A4 and A5 suppresses 2D lattice formation while maintaining curvature induction

In a collaboration with The Danish Cancer Society, Mularski et al, from the Simonsen Lab, describes how simultaneous membrane binding of Annexin A4 and A5 suppresses 2D lattice formation while maintaining curvature induction.  Hypothesis: Annexin A4 and A5 (ANXA4, ANXA5), both shown to be required for efficient plasma membrane repair (PMR) in living cells, bind …

Annexins A1 and A2 Accumulate and Are Immobilized at Cross- Linked Membrane−Membrane Interfaces

In a collaboration with The Danish Cancer Society, Klenow et al, from the Simonsen Group, desribes how annexins A1 and A2 accumulate and are immobilized at cross-linked membrane−membrane interfaces.  Rapid membrane repair is required to ensure cell survival after rupture of the plasma membrane. The annexin family of proteins is involved in plasma membrane repair …
