The present paper reveals that a fluorescent derivative of nitrobenzylthioinosine, 5-(SAENTA-x8)-fluorescein, is a highly specific inhibitor of the neural NBTI-sensitive nucleoside transporter. 5-(SAENTA-x8)-fluorescein inhibited adenosine transport and [3H]NBTI binding with a Ki of 4 nM in cultured chromaffin cells. Flow cytometry demonstrated that 5-(SAENTA-x8)-fluorescein specifically interacted with the NBTI-sensitive nucleoside transporters with high affinity (K[D] = 6 nM). Activation of protein kinases A and C with forskolin or nicotinic receptor agonists, respectively, resulted in 50% inhibition of the fluorescence bound to the cells. Flow cytometry will allow studying nucleoside transport in single cells from heterogeneous neural cell populations.
