Responses to nucleoside analog drugs used in the treatment of cancers and viral infections can vary considerably between individuals. Genetic variability between individuals in their ability to transport drugs may be a contributory factor. Nucleoside transporters (NTs) move nucleosides and analog drugs across cell membranes. Four human NTs have been cloned:(More)
Adenosine is a physiologically important nucleoside in the cardiovascular system where it can act as a cardioprotectant and modulator of energy usage. Adenosine transporters (ATs) modulate cellular adenosine levels, which, in turn, can affect a number of processes such as receptor activation and glucose uptake, but their role in cardiac physiology is poorly(More)
