Nucleosides are required for DNA and RNA synthesis, and the nucleoside adenosine has a function in a variety of signaling processes. Nucleosides require a specialized class of integral membrane proteins, known as nucleoside transporters (NTs), for specific transport across cell membranes. NTs are also important determinants for the transport of nucleoside-derived drugs across cell membranes. Recently, the crystal structure of the vcCNT (Vibrio cholerae Concentrative Nucleoside Transporter) was… CONTINUE READING
