Cyclosporin A C-6000-1G C-6000-5G C-6000-10G C-6000-25G
Cyclic hydrophobic oligopeptide isolated from the filamentous fungi, Tolypocladium inflatum, with potent immunosuppressant properties. Induces apoptosis in rat thymocytes and in murine B cell lymphoma cells, but prevents apoptosis in BLB cell lines induced by anti-IgM and ionomycin. Donjerkovic, D., et al.
