FKBP1A is a 12kDa protein initialy discovered onin immune cells on the basis of its capability to bind and mediate the intracellular effect of the immunosuppressant FK506. FKBP1A is also known to mediate the action of Rapamycin-immunosuppressive agent.FKBP1A is part of the family of immunophilins, which have in common high affinity for immunosuppressant drµgs and a peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase (PPIase).Activity which participates in folding of proline-containing protein. In the absence of immunosuppressive ligands, FKBP1A is involved in intracellular calcium regulation by associating with 3 types of Ca2+release channel complexes: skeletal ryanodine receptors, cardiac ryanodine receptors and the inositol 1,4,5-triphosphate receptor. FKBP1A also interact with TGF-? type I receptor exerting an inhibitory effect on the TGF-? signaling pathway. FKBP12 plays a role in modulation of ryanodine receptor isoform-1 (ryr-1), a component of the calcium release channel of skeletal muscle sarcoplasmic reticulum. FKBP1A increase the folding of proteins and catalyzes the cis-trans isomerization of proline imidic peptide bonds in oligopeptides.
The FKBP1A protein solution contains 50mM Hepes pH-8.0, 150mM NaCl, 0.5mM EDTA & 1mM sodium azide.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
