Biological Activity for Cyclosporin A

Cyclosporin A is an immunosuppressant; simultaneously binds calcineurin and cyclophilin and inhibits phosphatase activity of calcineurin (IC50 = 5 nM). Additionally inhibits formation and opening of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (MPTP). Also inhibits coronavirus replication in vitro. Enhances lentirival transduction of bone marrow-derived CD34+ cells and is additive with Prostaglandin E2 (Cat. No. 2296).
