Title Neuroprotective and antioxidant properties of FKBP-binding immunophilin ligands are independent on the FKBP12 pathway in human cells.
Journal Neurosci. Lett.
Abstract We focused on immunophilin isoforms in order to clarify the neuroimmunophilins which were identified as targets for the immunophilin ligands to elicit a neuroprotective effect. Although the expressions of five FK506-binding protein (FKBP) mRNAs were detected in both SH-SY5Y (human neuroblastoma) and U251 (human glioma) cell lysates, the FKBP12 mRNA expression was detected in only the SH-SY5Y cells, and not the U251 cells. However, we found that the SH-SY5Y and the U251 cells were equipotent in the intensity of cellular protection of FK506 (an immunosuppressive immunophilin ligand) and GPI1046 (a non-immunosuppressive FK506 analog), indicating that the protective effect and glutathione activation of FK506 and GPI1046 had little need to bind FKBP12. Therefore, we conclude that the neuroprotective and antioxidant properties of immunophilin ligands are independent on the FKBP12 pathway.
