Other Notes
Small volumes of ANXA5 kit vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

ANXA5 kit
This test employs the property of Annexin V:Biotin to bind to the membrane phospholipid phosphatidylserine (PS) in the presence of Ca2+. PS is exposed at the cell surface during the early stages of apoptosis. Detection of PS is a very sensitive method for detecting cells entering apoptosis, at a time point considerably ahead of nuclear changes such as DNA degradation. The conjugation protocol used to prepare Annexin V:Biotin has not changed the native phospholipid binding properties of Annexin V. This protocol is designed to measure apoptosis easily and quickly in a sample of suspended cells.

NCBI Summary for ANXA5
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the annexin family of calcium-dependent phospholipid binding proteins some of which have been implicated in membrane-related events along exocytotic and endocytotic pathways. Annexin 5 is a phospholipase A2 and protein kinase C inhibitory protein with calcium channel activity and a potential role in cellular signal transduction, inflammation, growth and differentiation. Annexin 5 has also been described as placental anticoagulant protein I, vascular anticoagulant-alpha, endonexin II, lipocortin V, placental protein 4 and anchorin CII. The gene spans 29 kb containing 13 exons, and encodes a single transcript of approximately 1.6 kb and a protein product with a molecular weight of about 35 kDa. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for ANXA5
ANXA5: a calcium/phospholipid-binding protein and an anticoagulant protein that acts as an indirect inhibitor of the thromboplastin-specific complex, which is involved in the blood coagulation cascade. The binding of labeled ANXA5 to phosphatidylserine is used as a marker of apoptosis. Annexins are a family of structurally related proteins whose common property is calcium-dependent binding to phospholipids. There are at least ten different annexins in mammalian species. Annexins do not contain signal peptides, yet some annexins (A1, A2 and A5) appear to be secreted in a physiologically regulated fashion.
