Protein Phosphatase 2B/Calcineurin (PP2B) Protein phosphatase 2B (PP2B, also known as calcineurin) is more correctly identified as protein phosphatase 3 (PP3). Calcineurin (PP3) plays an important role in numerous calcium-dependent biological processes that include signal transduction, immune responses, muscle development, neural development and memory, and cardiac hypertrophy. Like the other members of the PPP superfamily of serine/threonine phosphatases, calcineurin (PP3) is encoded by several catalytic subunit genes and the activity of the catalytic subunits regulated by several regulatory/inhibitory subunits.
