Summary
The human peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase (PPIase) cyclophilin A interacts with the tumor suppressor protein p53, whereas the highly related human cyclophilin B specifically interacts with the transcription factor Stat3. In vivo data suggest functional importance of both interactions observed. Thus, cyclophilin A and cyclophilin B both are involved, yet at different signaling levels, in cell signaling processes related to cancer development.
