Asha P. K. Nair, Hans H. Hirsch, Marco Colombi, Christoph Moroni
1999 Molecular and Cellular Biology  
Cyclosporin A (CsA), a calcineurin antagonist and blocker of interleukin-2 (IL-2) transcription in T cells, was found to inhibit translation of IL-3 mRNA in autocrine mast cell tumor lines.  ...  The mechanism involved ribosome-associated poly(A) shortening and required an intact AU-rich element in the 3′ untranslated region. FK506, another calcineurin inhibitor, shared the effect.  ...  (a) Northern blot analysis of poly(A) ϩ RNA (RNA was extracted by method A) from PB-3c, V2, V4D6, and V2D1 cells.  ...
