Disease relevance of FKBP7


High impact information on FKBP7

  • These analyses suggest that the FKBP multigene family emerged early in the evolutionary history of eukaryotes, and during that time some members, including the FKBP65 gene, have experienced gene elongation by means of PPIase domain duplication [2].
  • Both families, although dissimilar in sequence, possess peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase activity in vitro and can play roles in protein folding and transport, RNA splicing and the regulation of multi-protein complexes in cells [3].
  • All but one of the PPIase inhibiting mAbs were able to significantly inhibit the early establishment and initiation of an intracellular infection of the bacteria in Acanthamoeba castellanii, the natural host, and in the human phagocytic cell line U937 [1].
