The regulators of calcineurin (RCAN) proteins, previously known as calcipressins, have been considered to be a well conserved family from yeast to human based on the conservation of their FLISPP motif. Here, after performing a RCAN comparative genomic analysis we propose the existence of a novel functionally closely related RCAN subfamily restricted to(More)
Calcineurin phosphatase plays a crucial role in T cell activation. Dephosphorylation of the nuclear factors of activated T cells (NFATs) by calcineurin is essential for activating cytokine gene expression and, consequently, the immune response. Current immunosuppressive protocols are based mainly on calcineurin inhibitors, cyclosporine A and FK506.(More)
