Summaries for ANXA1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ANXA1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a membrane-localized protein that binds phospholipids. This protein inhibits phospholipase A2 and has anti-inflammatory activity. Loss of function or expression of this gene has been detected in multiple tumors. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]

GeneCards Summary for ANXA1 Gene

ANXA1 (Annexin A1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and phospholipid binding. An important paralog of this gene is ANXA9.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ANXA1 Gene

  • Calcium/phospholipid-binding protein which promotes membrane fusion and is involved in exocytosis. This protein regulates phospholipase A2 activity. It seems to bind from two to four calcium ions with high affinity
