External Ids for PPIB Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a cyclosporine-binding protein and is mainly located within the endoplasmic reticulum. It is associated with the secretory pathway and released in biological fluids. This protein can bind to cells derived from T- and B-lymphocytes, and may regulate cyclosporine A-mediated immunosuppression. Variants have been identified in this protein that give rise to recessive forms of osteogenesis imperfecta. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]
GeneCards Summary for PPIB Gene
PPIB (Peptidylprolyl Isomerase B (Cyclophilin B)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PPIB include osteogenesis imperfecta, type ix and ppib-related osteogenesis imperfecta. Among its related pathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and RANK Signaling in Osteoclasts. GO annotations related to this gene include unfolded protein binding and peptide binding. An important paralog of this gene is PPIL1.
