PP2B (calcineurin) is a calcium-dependent, calmodulin-stimulated protein phosphatase. It comprises of two components; a catalytic subunit and a regulatory subunit which confers calcium sensitivity to the complex. PP2B is in equilibrium between active and inactive forms. Because the affinity of calmodulin for the active form is higher than for the inactive form, it stabilises PP2B.
