Cyclosporin drug molecule. Computer model showing the structure of a molecule of the immunosuppressant drug cyclosporin. Atoms are colour-coded: carbon (grey); nitrogen (blue); oxygen (red). Cyclosporin is widely used in organ transplant to reduce the risk of organ rejection. It reduces the activity of the immune system by interfering with the activity of T cells. Cyclosporins were originally isolated from fungi where they are a group of biologically active metabolites.
