|Other Names||Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase FKBP8, PPIase FKBP8, 188.8.131.52, 38 kDa FK506-binding protein, 38 kDa FKBP, FKBP-38, hFKBP38, FK506-binding protein 8, FKBP-8, FKBPR38, Rotamase, FKBP8, FKBP38|
|Format||0.5 mg/ml in Tris saline, 0.02% sodium azide, pH7.3 with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||FKBP8 / FKBP38 Antibody (internal region) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|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.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Mitochondrion membrane; Single- pass membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Highest levels seen in the brain. Highly abundant in the retina|
