24471494 Cultured astroctye line 1321N1 and primary human astrocytes transport monoamines predominantly through PMAT.
22562044 Transport kinetic analysis revealed that I89M mutant in PMAT protein had a 2.7-fold reduction in maximal transport velocity with no significant change in apparent binding affinity.
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.
20858707 The selectivity and kinetics of monoamine neurotransmitter transport by PMAT and OCT3 was determined. PMAT is expressed at much higher levels than hOCT3 in brain, whereas hOCT3 is selectively and highly expressed in adrenal gland and skeletal muscle.
20392501 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19357181 The data suggest that PMAT is specifically expressed in podocytes and may play an important role in puromycin aminonucleoside-induced kidney injury.
18523561 identification of ENT4 as a highly expressed transcript in desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) may represent an attractive pathway for targeting chemotherapeutic drugs into DSRCT
17393420 PMAT, EMT, and OCT2 transporters are expressed in the endometrial stroma and can potentially regulate reuptake of monoamines in general and histamine in particular.
17121826 Amino acid substitution at several sites results in loss of activity ane conformation.
17018840 our data suggest that PMAT is expressed on the apical membranes of renal epithelial cells and may use luminal proton gradient to drive organic cation reabsorption in the kidney.
16873718 ENT4, in addition to playing roles in cardiac serotonin transport, contributes to the regulation of extracellular adenosine concentrations, in particular under the acidotic conditions associated with ischemia.
16099839 PMAT can function as a polyspecific organic cation transporter, which may play a role in organic cation transport in vivo.
15448143 may be a novel low affinity transporter for biogenic amines, might supplement the high affinity transporters in the brain
