"Cyclic oligopeptide with immunosuppressant properties. Induces apoptosis in rat thymocytes and in the murine B cell lymphoma cell line, WEH1-231. However, prevents anti-IgM and ionomycin-induced apoptosis in BLB cell lines. The complex of cyclosporin A with cyclophilin inhibits protein phosphatase 2B with nanomolar affinity. Inhibits nitric oxide synthesis induced by interleukin-1α, lipopolysaccharides, and TNF-α. Induces cardiomyocytes from embryonic stem cells."
