FKBP38 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human intestine using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat FKBP38 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3580) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the nucleus of epithelial cells in intestinal glands. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections. This application has not been tested in rat or mouse tissue.
Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat FKBP38 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line, MDA‑MB‑468 human breast cancer cell line, A549 human lung carcinoma cell line, C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line, and L6 rat myoblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat FKBP38 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3580) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). A specific band was detected for FKBP38 at approximately 60 - 64 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.
Simple Western lane view shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line and MDA‑MB‑468 human breast cancer cell line, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for FKBP38 at approximately 58 kDa (as indicated) using 5 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat FKBP38 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3580) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

FK506 Binding Proteins (FKBPs) are intracellular receptors for the immuno-suppressive drug FK506. The FKBP/FK506 complex exerts its immunosuppressive effects by inhibiting calcineurin, a calcium- and calmodulin-dependent serine/threonine phosphatase that functions as a critical signaling molecule during T cell activation. FKBP38, also known as FKBP8, is a 355 amino acid (aa) protein with a calculated molecular weight of 38.7 kDa and an apparent molecular mass of ~60-64 kDa in SDS-PAGE. FKBP38 binds to and inhibits calcineurin even in the absence of FK506, indicating that FKBP38 is a constitutively active inhibitor of calcineurin. Additionally, FKBP38 immunoprecipitates with Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL, suggesting that FKBP38 may regulate apoptosis by anchoring Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL to mitochondrial membranes. Mouse FKBP38 shares 94% and 87% sequence identity with human and rat FKBP38, respectively.
