In this study, we examined the effects of CsA on the antigen presentation capacity of two monocyte subpopulations and the role of CsA-caused PGE2 release in the CsA-induced inhibition of monocyte antigen presentation. Our results suggest that a monocyte subpopulation that efficiently presents antigens is relatively more sensitive to CsA than a subpopulation that preferentially induces immunosuppression.
