PA1-020 detects FK506 binding protein 51 kDa (FKBP51) in canine, hamster, human, mouse and rat tissues.
PA1-020 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~51 kDa protein representing FKBP51 in HeLa cell lysate. By Western blot PA1-020 also detects FKBP51 in whole tissue extracts from rat kidney and rat and mouse testes.
The PA1-020 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to the residues C(394) Q K K A K E H N E R D R R(407) of human FKBP51. There is a single amino acid substitution (K396 to R396) in this domain between human and mouse FKBP51 protein. PA1-020 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-078) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
FKBP5 is a member of the immunophilin protein family. This family plays a role in immunoregulation and basic cellular processes involving protein folding and trafficking. FKBP5 is a cis-trans prolyl isomerase that binds to the immunosuppressants FK506 and rapamycin. It is thought to mediate calcineurin inhibition. It also interacts functionally with mature hetero-oligomeric progesterone receptor complexes along with the 90 kDa heat shock protein and P23 protein. The gene that encodes FKBP5 has been found to have multiple polyadenylation sites. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
