SLC28 genes and concentrative nucleoside transporter (CNT) proteins.

hCNT1 and hCNT2 translocate pyrimidine- and purine-nucleosides, respectively, by a sodium-dependent mechanism, whereas hCNT3 shows broad substrate selectivity and the unique ability of translocating nucleosides both in a sodium- and a proton-coupled manner.
Renal nucleoside transporters: physiological and clinical implications.
Edmonton, Canada. In Biochem Cell Biol, 2006
The 7 known human NTs (hNTs) exhibit varying permeant selectivities and are divided into 2 protein families: the solute carrier (SLC) 29 (SLC29A1, SLC29A2, SLC29A3, SLC29A4) and SLC28 (SLC28A1, SLC28A2, SLC28A3) proteins, otherwise known, respectively, as the human equilibrative NTs (hENTs, hENT1, hENT2, hENT3, hENT4) and human concentrative NTs (hCNTs, hCNT1, hCNT2, hCNT3).
