23639800 Data suggest that SLC29A2 is localized to apical membrane of adult Sertoli cells. In contrast, SLC29A1 is located on basolateral membrane of Sertoli cells; SLC29A1 is primarily responsible for basolateral nucleoside uptake into Sertoli cells.
23590299 these findings reveal the transcriptional repression of ENT1,2 as an innate protective response during acute pulmonary inflammation.
21822668 Data show that ENT1, ENT2, ENT4 and CNT3 protein was detected on ovarian carcinoma cells in all effusions, with expression observed in 1-95% of tumor cells.
21156465 Studies show that ABCC4 and SLC29A2 expression were predictive of achieving CR, and the high expression of GSTP1 suggests that this may be a therapeutic target for relapsed AML.

17926640 These data suggest that selected genes of the SLC28 and SLC29 families are not only targets of HIV-1 infection, but might also contribute to the development of adipose tissue alterations leading to lipodystrophy.
17921321 Human cardiac microvascular endothelial cells rely on ENT1 for nucleoside transport with little contribution from ENT2.
16924660 Data show that insulin restores glucose inhibition of adenosine transport by increasing the expression and activity of the equilibrative nucleoside transporter 2 in human umbilical vein endothelium.
16214850 The low overall genetic diversity in SLC29A2 makes it unlikely that variation in the coding region contributes significantly to clinically observed differences in drug response.
15649894 the corresponding residues in TMs 1 and 11 of hENT1, hENT2, and CeENT1 are important for dipyridamole interactions and nucleoside transport.
15644498 residue 33 resides in an extracellular domain as predicted by the current hENT2 topology model and suggested that it is a functionally important component of both the permeant and dipyridamole binding sites.
15386342 Only a few endometrial carcinomas (15%) were found to be negative for hCNT1, but they all retained hENT1 and hENT2 expression.
