I once worked with DSP-4 (N-2-chloroethyl-N-ethyl-2-bromobenzylamine as 
an alternative to 6-OHDA) whilst looking at forebrain NE' (and other 
monomaines') role in various aspects of learning. It looks like the term 
"transporter" is being used as a synonym for (presynaptic) "reuptake 
receptor". Is that the case? I used to use DMI, 5-7 DHT, but not MDMA 
in control groups. I thought these ligands were somewhat dirty and bound 
to lots of receptors - is this what you're interested in, ie their 
relative affinities - sorry if this has all been said earlier).

This is really a trivial question as I expect matters have moved on 
considerably since my day (although I do try to keep up with some of
