FK506 binding protein 7 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FKBP7 gene.[1] The gene is also known as FKBP23 and PPIase.[1] FKBP7 belongs to the FKBP-type peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase (PPIase) family. Members of this family exhibit PPIase activity and function as molecular chaperones. The orthologous protein in mouse is located in the endoplasmic reticulum and binds calcium.[1][2]

Model organisms[edit]

Model organisms have been used in the study of FKBP7 function. A conditional knockout mouse line, called Fkbp7tm2a(KOMP)Wtsi[3][4] was generated as part of the International Knockout Mouse Consortium program — a high-throughput mutagenesis project to generate and distribute animal models of disease to interested scientists — at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.[5][6][7]

Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen to determine the effects of deletion.[8][9]

Twenty three tests were carried out on mutant mice, but no significant abnormalities were observed.[8]
