Description:
Cyclophilin B (CyPB) is a cyclosporin A-binding protein and a peptidyl prolylisomerase (PPI) that is a member of the immunophilin family of soluble cytosolic receptors and mainly localized within the endoplasmic reticulum vesicles.1 Cyclophilin B is secreted in response to inflammatory stimuli and CD147 serves as one its receptors.2 The CyPB-cyclosporin A complex has been shown to inhibit calcineurin, a calcium and calmodulin dependent protein phosphatase which has been implicated as an important signaling enzyme in T-cell activation. A recent study has shown that CyPB is important for facilitating the nuclear retrotransport and action of the somatolactogenic hormone family, such as prolactin and growth hormone.3 CyPB is necessary for the prolactin-induced proliferation, cell growth, and the nuclear retrotransport of prolactin. The prolactin/ CyPB complex acts as a transcriptional inducer by interacting directly with Stat5, which can ultimately enhance Stat5 DNA-binding activity and prolactin-induced, Stat5- mediated gene expression.
