Cyclosporine and Tacrolimus

Inhibit calcineurin, which blocks T-cell activation by inhibiting activation of NFAT

What do Tregs produce

They are made in the thymus and they secret inhibitory cytokines IL-10 and tissue factor beta (TGF-B)

This blocks the activation and effector functions of self-reactive and pathogenic lymphocytes in the periphery

Also will block activation of macrophages

Lacking this leads to autoimmune diseases
