- PubMed Abstract:
The "large immunophilin" family consists of domains of cyclophilin or FK506 binding protein linked to a tetratricopeptide (TPR) domain. They are intimately associated with steroid receptor complexes and bind to the C-terminal domain of Hsp90 via the TPR domain. The competitive binding of specific large immunophilins and other TPR-Hsp90 proteins provides a regulatory mechanism for Hsp90 chaperone activity.
