Insights into opioid action in the intestinal tract.
Activation of 5‐HT3 receptors in the rat and mouse intestinal tract: a comparative study
It is concluded that functional 5‐ HT3 receptors are present in nerves along the length of the rat and mouse intestinal tract and the mouse proximal colon was found to discriminate 5‐HT3 receptor agonist profiles better than any other region in the rat or mouse.
Characterisation of a postjunctional 5-ht7-like and a prejunctional 5-HT3 receptor mediating contraction of rat isolated jejunum.
Comparison of opioid receptor distributions in the rat central nervous system.

Attempts were made to verify the folkmedicinal claim that the crude ethanolic extract of G. procumbens has antinflammatory action and torelate the activity to particular fractions using acroton oil-induced mouse ear inflammation model.
A comparative study of functional 5‐HT4 receptors in human colon, rat oesophagus and rat ileum
The studies have shown that the human colon, rat oesophagus and rat ileum contain functional 5‐HT4 receptors and the 5‐ HT4 receptor agonists displayed differences in these tissues making it to be cautious when extrapolating from animal to human tissue.
Comparison of opioid receptor distributions in the rat ileum.
Human 5–HT4 and 5–HT7 Receptor Splice Variants: Are they Important?
This review examines the functional relevance and known and candidate signalling systems that allow for splice variant specific responses include GPCR interacting proteins (GIPs) and G PCR receptor kinases (GRKs) which are examined.
