norepinephrine transporter


Also found in: Wikipedia.

norepinephrine transporter (NET),

a protein found, e.g., in the terminal of a presynaptic neuron, which decreases the concentration of norepinephrine near the synapse by effecting its reuptake into the presynaptic neuron.

In conjunction, the company's preclinical studies have demonstrated that Rhopressa lowers episcleral venous pressure, which contributes half of IOP in healthy subjects; provides an additional mechanism that reduces fluid production in the eye and lowers IOP; inhibits both Rho Kinase (ROCK) and norepinephrine transporter (NET); As well as may have an anti-fibrotic effect on the trabecular meshwork and the potential to increase perfusion of the trabecular meshwork.

In patients with cardiac failure, for example, increased spillover of norepinephrine from the heart into coronary sinus plasma was shown to reflect both increased exocytotic release and decreased efficiency of norepinephrine reuptake via the norepinephrine transporter (2).
