In addition the exogenous application of 5-hydroxytryptamine or 5-hydroxytryptamine type drugs to tissue bath preparations has revealed the presence of a large and ever growing population of 5-hydroxytryptamine receptors. The discovery that 5-hydroxytryptamine is released at(More)
5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) has significant effects on the skeletal neuromuscular junction. We have evaluated the potential neuromodulatory effects of 5-HT on the rat hemidiaphragm using a non-fatiguing pattern of stimulation (0.3 Hz) in a partially curarized preparation using tubocurarine (EC50 = 560 (range 400-650) nmol litre-1). 5-HT was added to the(More)
