solute carrier family 29 (equilibrative nucleoside transporter), member 1
solute carrier family 29 (nucleoside transporters), member 1
Solute carrier family 29 member 1
Mediates both influx and efflux of nucleosides across the membrane (equilibrative transporter). It is sensitive (ES) to low concentrations of the inhibitor nitrobenzylmercaptopurine riboside (NBMPR) and is sodium-independent. It has a higher affinity for adenosine. Inhibited by dipyridamole and dilazep (anticancer chemotherapeutics drugs).
Expressed in heart, brain, mammary gland, erythrocytes and placenta, and also in fetal liver and spleen.
Belongs to the SLC29A transporter family.
Basolateral cell membrane. Apical cell membrane. Predominantly localized in the basolateral membrane in polarised MDCK cells.
