A role for calcineurin in degranulation of murine cytotoxic T lymphocytes.


The immunosuppressive drugs cyclosporin A (CsA) and FK506 bind to distinct families of intracellular proteins, cyclophilins, and FK506 binding proteins (FKBP) respectively, termed immunophilins. Immuno-suppressant-immunophilin complexes bind to and inhibit the activity of calcineurin, a calcium-dependent serine/threonine phosphatase. CsA is known to inhibit… (More)
