In mouse erythrocytes harbouring the malarial parasite Plasmodium yoelii, three processes contributed to inward fluxes of adenosine, one of which is attributed to the native nucleoside transporter, because of the inhibitory effects of nitrobenzylthioinosine (NBMPR). New (parasite-induced) permeation processes of low NBMPR-sensitivity were (i) saturable fluxes with preference for the D enantiomer (D-Ado) and (ii) apparently unsaturable fluxes that proceeded by a channel-like route without… CONTINUE READING
