Equilibrative nucleoside transporter

The equilibrative nucleoside transporter (ENT) family, also known as SLC29, is a group of plasmalemmal transport proteins which transport nucleoside substrates like adenosine into cells.[1] There are four known ENTs, designated ENT1, ENT2, ENT3, and ENT4.[1][2] ENTs are blocked by adenosine reuptake inhibitors like dipyridamole and dilazep, drugs used clinically for their vasodilatory properties.[2][3]
