Protein Information
Name FKBP6
Synonyms FKBP36
Function Co-chaperone required during spermatogenesis to repress transposable elements and prevent their mobilization, which is essential for the germline integrity. Acts via the piRNA metabolic process, which mediates the repression of transposable elements during meiosis by forming complexes composed of piRNAs and Piwi proteins and govern the methylation and subsequent repression of transposons. Acts as a co-chaperone via its interaction with HSP90 and is required for the piRNA amplification process, the secondary piRNA biogenesis. May be required together with HSP90 in removal of 16 nucleotide ping-pong by-products from Piwi complexes, possibly facilitating turnover of Piwi complexes (By similarity).
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, cytosol. Nucleus. Chromosome. Note=Does not localize to pi-bodies. Localizes to meiotic chromosome cores and regions of homologous chromosome synapsis (By similarity).
Tissue Location Detected in all tissues examined, with higher expression in testis, heart, skeletal muscle, liver, and kidney

FK506 binding protein 6 (FKBP6) is a cellular receptor for the immunosuppressants FK506 and rapamycin in the immunophilin FKBP family (1). FKBP's are involved in several biochemical processes including protein folding, receptor signaling, protein trafficking and transcription (2). It forms a complex as FKBP-FK506 to competitively bind to and inhibit the Calcium- and calmodulin-dependent phosphatase calcineurin (3). FKBP6 plays a role in sex-specific fertility as a component of the synaptonemal complex, which is essential for chromosome pairing and meiotic division (4). A genetic deletion in FKBP6 is associated with Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS), a neurodevelopmental disorder (5).
