  • Function
    Constitutively inactive PPiase, which becomes active when bound to calmodulin and calcium. Seems to act as a chaperone for BCL2, targets it to the mitochondria and modulates its phosphorylation state. The BCL2/FKBP8/calmodulin/calcium complex probably interferes with the binding of BCL2 to its targets. The active form of FKBP8 may therefore play a role in the regulation of apoptosis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed. Highest levels seen in the brain.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 PPIase FKBP-type domain.
    Contains 3 TPR repeats.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
