Human Cyclophilin A (Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase A, CYPA) gene encodes a protein which catalyzes the cis-trans isomerization of proline imidic peptide bonds in oligopeptides. It exerts a strong chemotactic effect on leukocytes partly through activation of one of its membrane receptors BSG/CD147, initiating a signaling cascade that culminates in MAPK/ERK activation. CYPA also activates endothelial cells (ECs) in a proinflammatory manner by stimulating activation of NF-kappa-B and ERK, JNK and p38 MAP-kinases and by inducing expression of adhesion molecules including SELE and VCAM1. CYPA induces apoptosis in ECs by promoting the FOXO1-dependent expression of CCL2 and BCL2L11 which are involved in EC chemotaxis and apoptosis. In response to oxidative stress, CYPA initiates proapoptotic and antiapoptotic signaling in ECs via activation of NF-kappa-B and AKT1 and up-regulation of antiapoptotic protein BCL2. It negatively regulates MAP3K5/ASK1 kinase activity, autophosphorylation and oxidative stress-induced apoptosis mediated by MAP3K5/ASK1. It is necessary for the assembly of TARDBP in heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein (hnRNP) complexes and regulates TARDBP binding to RNA UG repeats and TARDBP-dependent expression of HDAC6, ATG7 and VCP which are involved in clearance of protein aggregates. It plays an important role in platelet activation and aggregation. CYPA regulates calcium mobilization and integrin ITGA2B:ITGB3 bidirectional signaling via increased ROS production as well as by facilitating the interaction between integrin and the cell cytoskeleton. It also binds heparan sulfate glycosaminoglycans. Recent data indicated that APOE4 accelerates advanced-stage Blood–brain barrier (BBB) breakdown and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s mice via the CYPA pathway in pericytes independently of amyloid-β, which has implication for the pathogenesis and treatment of vascular and neurodegenerative disorder in AD.
Full-length human CYPA cDNA (164aa, Isoform-I) was constructed with codon optimization gene synthesis and expressed with YFP Protein as N-terminal (YFP; 256aa) fusion protein in E.coli as inclusion bodies. The final product was refolded using our unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.
