- 38 kDa FK506-binding protein
- 38 kDa FKBP
FunctionConstitutively 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 specificityWidely expressed. Highest levels seen in the brain.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 PPIase FKBP-type domain.
Contains 3 TPR repeats.
Cellular localizationMitochondrion membrane.
