Chemical Neurotransmitter Uptake Inhibitors

Name Neurotransmitter Uptake Inhibitors
Equivalent Terms Inhibitors, Neurotransmitter Reuptake | Inhibitors, Neurotransmitter Uptake | Neurotransmitter Reuptake Inhibitors | Reuptake Inhibitors, Neurotransmitter | Transmitter Uptake Inhibitors, Neuronal | Uptake Inhibitors, Neurotransmitter
Definition Drugs that inhibit the transport of neurotransmitters into axon terminals or into storage vesicles within terminals. For many transmitters, uptake determines the time course of transmitter action so inhibiting uptake prolongs the activity of the transmitter. Blocking uptake may also deplete available transmitter stores. Many clinically important drugs are uptake inhibitors although the indirect reactions of the brain rather than the acute block of uptake itself is often responsible for the therapeutic effects.
