Human Gene PPIA (uc003tlw.3) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens peptidylprolyl isomerase A (cyclophilin A) (PPIA), mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_021130): This gene encodes a member of the peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase (PPIase) family. PPIases catalyze the cis-trans isomerization of proline imidic peptide bonds in oligopeptides and accelerate the folding of proteins. The encoded protein is a cyclosporin binding-protein and may play a role in cyclosporin A-mediated immunosuppression. The protein can also interact with several HIV proteins, including p55 gag, Vpr, and capsid protein, and has been shown to be necessary for the formation of infectious HIV virions. Multiple pseudogenes that map to different chromosomes have been reported. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008].

ID:PPIA_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase A; Short=PPIase A; EC=220.127.116.11; AltName: Full=Cyclophilin A; AltName: Full=Cyclosporin A-binding protein; AltName: Full=Rotamase A; FUNCTION: PPIases accelerate the folding of proteins. It catalyzes the cis-trans isomerization of proline imidic peptide bonds in oligopeptides. CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: Peptidylproline (omega=180) = peptidylproline (omega=0). ENZYME REGULATION: Binds cyclosporin A (CsA). CsA mediates some of its effects via an inhibitory action on PPIase. SUBUNIT: Interacts with HIV-1 Capsid protein. INTERACTION: Q72497:gag (xeno); NbExp=6; IntAct=EBI-437708, EBI-1036263; Q16849:PTPRN; NbExp=3; IntAct=EBI-437708, EBI-728153; O00267:SUPT5H; NbExp=2; IntAct=EBI-437708, EBI-710464; SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. Secreted. Note=Secretion occurs in response to oxidative stress in vascular smooth muscle through a vesicular secretory pathway that involves actin remodeling and myosin II activation, and mediates ERK1/2 activation. PTM: Acetylation at Lys-125 markedly inhibits catalysis of cis to trans isomerization and stabilizes cis rather than trans forms of the HIV-1 capsid. PPIA acetylation also antagonizes the immunosuppressive effects of cyclosporine by inhibiting the sequential steps of cyclosporine binding and calcineurin inhibition. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the cyclophilin-type PPIase family. PPIase A subfamily. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 PPIase cyclophilin-type domain.

The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on P62937
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
