Abstract

The neurotransmitter transporters belong to three known families of intrinsic membrane proteins (Figure 1). The energy for transport, which is often against the neurotransmitter concentration gradient, is derived from the cotransport (and in some cases the counter transport) of inorganic ions. Ion-transporting ATPases establish the concentration gradients for these ions.
