Abstract

Peripheral membrane association with high calcium stoichiometry is shared by three families of proteins: annexins, pentraxins and vitamin-K-dependent proteins. Recent crystal structure determinations, biophysical studies of membrane binding and analyses of protein electrostatic properties offer striking and different concepts for membrane association by each of these protein families.
