Annexin V (placental anticoagulant protein I) binds tightly to anionic phospholipid vesicles in the presence of calcium. Four mutant proteins were expressed in Escherichia coli in which Ala replaced one of the following residues in the third repeat of annexin V: Arg-200, His-204, Arg-206, or Lys-207. In a competitive fluorescence quenching assay, the wild-type recombinant protein had the same affinity for phosphatidylserine-containing vesicles as the placentally derived protein. The affinity of the four mutant proteins for phosphatidylserine-containing vesicles was unchanged relative to wild-type protein. We conclude that His-204 and adjacent basic residues, including the highly conserved Arg-200 residue, are not required for high-affinity phospholipid binding.
