As a unique member of the FKBP family, FKBP38 contains three types of domains: FKBP-type peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase (FKBP_C), tetratricopeptide repeat domain (TPR).
These features are similar to those of Rheb and FKBP38 in other species, indicating that the deduced goat Rheb protein has Ras-like small GTPase activity and that FKBP38 has intrinsic FKBP family activity.

FKBP52 couldbindwithsteroid receptors in FKBPs [19].
Furthermore, FKBP52 will have a higher binding affinity for HSP90 and steroid receptors (which could act as a cochaperone [28,29]) than FKBP51, which has a similar structure to FKBPs and can make microtubules more stable [20, 30].
[4] Nonstandard abbreviations: CNI, calcineurin inhibitor; MMF, mycophenolate mofetil; CNA, calcineurin activity; PD, pharmacodynamic; CsA, cyclosporin A; TRL, tacrolimus; IL, interleukin; IFN, interferon; FKBP, FK-binding protein; PK, pharmacokinetic; AUC, area under the curve; NHC, healthy control; DTT, dithiothreitol; PHA, phytohemagglutinin; TFA, trifluoroacetic acid; AP, alkaline phosphatase; PBMC, peripheral blood mononuclear cell; and MPA, mycophenolic acid.
To inhibit CNA, CsA and TRL must bind to the immunophilins present in the cytoplasm of T lymphocytes: cyclophilins in the case of CsA and FK-binding proteins (FKBPs) in the case of TRL.

Rapamycin binds to the same intracellular binding protein in lymphocytes (FKBP or FK-506 binding protein) as its structural homolog, the immunosuppressive drug FK-506 [3], and inhibits the S6p70-kinase [4], an immunosuppressive mechanism of drug biological action quite different from that of FK-506 (tacrolimus), which inhibits the phosphatase activity of calcineurin in vitro [5].(3)
