annexins
Group of calcium-binding proteins that interact with acidic membrane phospholipids in membranes. They contain 4 or 8 repeats of a 61-amino acid domain that folds into 5 a -helices. Also known by several other names (eg. lipocortins, endonexins), reflecting the history of their discovery in different contexts.
