The mechanisms of action of the immunosuppressive drugs cyclosporin A (CsA), FK506 and rapamycin are strikingly conserved from yeast to human T cells. Recent results obtained with yeast corroborate calcineurin as the target of CsA-cyclophilin and FK506-FKBP complexes, and reveal a phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase homologue as the target of the rapamycin-FKBP complex.
