FKBP6 (O75344) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis


FKBP6, Inactive peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase FKBP6
UniProt O75344

Also Known as FKBP6_HUMAN, FKBP6, FKBP36

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. Interacts (via TPR repeats) with HSP90 (By similarity). Interacts with HSP72/HSPA2 and CLTC. Interacts with GAPDH; leading to inhibit GAPDH catalytic activity.
