ABSTRACT

Equilibrative nucleoside transporters (ENTs) play a crucial role in the transport of nucleoside and nucleoside analogues, which are important for nucleotide synthesis and chemotherapy. In addition, ENTs regulate extracellular adenosine levels in the vicinity of its receptors and hence influence adenosine-related functions. The clinical applications of ENT inhibitors in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and cancer therapy have been explored in numerous studies. However, all ENT inhibitors to date are selective for ENT1 but not ENT2. In the present study, we investigated the novel compound 4-((4-(2-fluorophenyl)piperazin-1-yl)methyl)-6-imino-N-(naphthalen-2-yl)-1,3,5-triazin-2-amine (FPMINT) as an inhibitor of ENT1 and ENT2. Nucleoside transporter-deficient PK15NTD cells stably expressing ENT1 and ENT2 showed that FPMINT inhibited [
