(Fig. 4B). The IC50 of SLFpYEEI for the Fyn SH2 domain

1.5 M (Fig. 4C). This increase was confirmed by ITC (SLF-

to indicate that the FKBP12 surface establishes unfavorable
interactions with the Fyn SH2 domain surface in the trimeric
complex (Fig. 4D). The SLFpYEEI–FKBP52 complex does
not affect the binding of the Fyn SH2 domain to pYEEI (data
not shown). Considering the four possible complexes for
presentation of the pYEEI peptide (two FKBPs and two
bifunctional molecules), one complex improves binding of the
pYEEI peptide to the Fyn SH2 domain, one complex dimin-
ishes binding, and two complexes have no measurable effect. DISCUSSION Borrowing Endogenous Proteins to Enhance the Charac- teristics of Small-Molecule Ligands. Our findings demonstrate
