FKBP COMPLEXED WITH METHYL METHYLSULFINYLMETHYL SULFIDE (DSS)
[FKB1A_HUMAN] Keeps in an inactive conformation TGFBR1, the TGF-beta type I serine/threonine kinase receptor, preventing TGF-beta receptor activation in absence of ligand. Recruites SMAD7 to ACVR1B which prevents the association of SMAD2 and SMAD3 with the activin receptor complex, thereby blocking the activin signal. May modulate the RYR1 calcium channel activity. PPIases accelerate the folding of proteins. It catalyzes the cis-trans isomerization of proline imidic peptide bonds in oligopeptides. 
Publication Abstract from PubMed
A new crystal form of native FK506 binding protein (FKBP) has been obtained which has proved useful in ligand binding studies. Three different small molecule ligand complexes and the native enzyme have been determined at higher resolution than 2.0 A. Dissociation constants of the related small molecule ligands vary from 20 mM for dimethylsulphoxide to 200 microM for tetrahydrothiophene 1-oxide. Comparison of the four available crystal structures shows that the protein structures are identical to within experimental error, but there are differences in the water structure in the active site. Analysis of the calculated buried surface areas of these related ligands provides an estimated van der Waals contribution to the binding energy of -0.5 kJ/A(2) for non-polar interactions between ligand and protein.
X-ray structures of small ligand-FKBP complexes provide an estimate for hydrophobic interaction energies.,Burkhard P, Taylor P, Walkinshaw MD J Mol Biol. 2000 Jan 28;295(4):953-62. PMID:10656803
