Nucleobase transport is important for the metabolism of nucleic acids and antiviral and antineoplastic drugs. This transport has been functionally described in several mammalian cells but has not been well characterized molecularly. We report the cloning of two novel transporters. YSPL2 encodes a 650-residue protein and has an ubiquitous 8 kb transcript. The human and pig homologs are 95% similar. YSPL3 encodes a 598-residue protein with a 3 kb transcript that is expressed only in kidney and… CONTINUE READING
