Some amphetamine affinities

Reuptake transporter = Reuptake carrier, and Although I've never heard it 
before, presumabley they are all the same as the reuptake receptor.

What I am after is a single experiment that quantifies, either in terms 
of EC50s, or Ki/d/m (whatever) the affinity for those various 
amphetamines for the 5-HT reuptake transporter/carrier/receptor and the 
dopamine transporter/carrier/receptor. The reason why Im after the 
affinities in one paper, is that I find wildely varying affinities from 
one paper to the next.
