Serotoninergic receptors on human airway epithelial cells.
Freiburg, Germany. In Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol, 2007
Employing a PCR approach we were able to demonstrate mRNA expression of several 5-HTR, such as the heptahelical receptors 5-HTR1A, 5-HTR1B, 5-HTR1E, 5-HTR1F, 5-HTR2A, 5-HTR4, 5-HTR6, and 5-HTR7, as well as the ligand-gated ion channel 5-HTR3 in alveolar epithelial cells type II (AEC-II), A549, and BEAS-2B cells.
Suicide and serotonin: study of variation at seven serotonin receptor genes in suicide completers.
Québec, Canada. In Am J Med Genet B Neuropsychiatr Genet, 2003
Based on several lines of evidence supporting a reduced serotonergic neurotransmission in subjects who committed suicide, we investigated variation at genes that code for serotonin receptor 1B (5-HTR1B), 1Dalpha (5-HTR1Dalpha), 1E (5-HTR1E), 1F (5-HTR1F), 2C (5-HTR2C), 5A (5-HTR5A), and 6 (5-HTR6) in a total sample of 106 suicide completers and 120 normal controls.
Quantitative mRNA analysis of eight bovine 5-HT receptor subtypes in brain, abomasum, and intestine by real-time RT-PCR.
Bern, Switzerland. In J Recept Signal Transduct Res, 2002
LightCycler real-time RT-PCR assays (partial CDS) for the following bovine 5-HTR subtypes were developed and validated: 5-HTR1A, 5-HTR1B, 5-HTR1D, 5-HTR1F, 5-HTR2A, 5-HTR2B, 5-HTR2C, and 5-HTR4.
