FK-506 is a potent immunosuppressant and in vitro
T cell
proliferation blocker. It has been shown to disrupt calcineurin
(also known as phosphatase 2B)-mediated signal transduction in
T lymphocytes. The compound interacts with its FK-506-binding
protein-12 (FKBP-12). The resulting complex, in turn, interferes
with calcineurin substrate interaction. Dumont, F.J., “FK-506, an
immunosuppressant targeting calcineurin function.”

Chem.

FK-506 inhibits FKBP activity resulting in an increase in the
release of sarcoplasmic reticulum-derived calcium. FK-506 also
appears to inhibit Na(+)-Ca
2+ exchange. Prolonged exposure of
Xenopus
A6 cells to FK-506 significantly inhibits aldosteronestimulated Na+ transport and Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase activity. Unlike
rapamycin, which also binds to FK-506-binding protein-12,
FKBP12 with or without bound FK-506 has no effect on rat
brain PKC activity in vitro

contraction and Ca
2+ transients in rat cardiac myocytes.”
