Novel assay for inhibition of monoamine reuptake transporters by new psychoactive substances (NPS)

Body: 

Zwartsen et al investigated the effects on a number of common illicit drugs, new psychoactive substances (NPS) and an antidepressant on monoamine reuptake transporters (DAT, NET and SERT) using a novel high-throughput fluorescent assay. The results demonstrate that this uncomplicated assay is a good alternative for radiometric assays to investigate effects of different illicit drugs and NPS on monoamine reuptake transporters (Toxicology In Vitro).
