Effect of PGE 1 (0.4 mg/kg i p ) and Drugs affecting serotonin and Prostaglandin metabolism including aphrodisiac plants on the serotonin level in rat uterus in estrus, and pregnant state were taken up in the present study. Female aphrodisiac an upcoming branch became a thrust area after the discovery of Sildenfil. Some known aphrodisiac plants and natural products showed to increase uterine 5-HT level. The 5-HT response in rat's uterus is different in estrus and non-estrus state .The uterine 5… Expand

Heterogeneity of 5‐hydroxytryptamine receptors in the rat uterus and stomach strip
TLDR
Results indicate a difference between the two tissues in the effects of 5‐hydroxytryptamine on 5‐HT receptors in the presence of different antagonists, including trazodone and Amitriptyline. Expand
Uterine and placental 5-HT profile in different gestational period of albino rats.
TLDR
The results show that a critical level of 5-HT in early gestational period is necessary for conception and Manipulation of endogenous 5- HT do not influence duration of gestation. Expand
Serotonin: receptors and antagonists--summary of symposium.
TLDR
There is evidence that 5-hydroxytryptamine releases endothelium-derived relaxing factor attenuating its direct constriction effect and in the human forearm an increase in flow is seen from serotonin, and ketanserin has undergone wide evaluation. Expand
5-HT1A receptor antagonists and lordosis behavior
TLDR
The argument that the inhibitory effect of 5- HT1A receptor agonists on lordosis behavior is the result of their activation of VMN 5-HT1A receptors is strengthened. Expand

Relaxant and contractile effects of some amines and prostanoids in myometrial and vascular smooth muscle within the human uteroplacental unit.
TLDR
Smooth muscle tissues from the human uteroplacental unit show individual responses to prostanoids and amines, probably reflecting individual mechanisms for control of contractile activity and blood flow. Expand
Serotonin and vasoconstrictor synergism.
TLDR
A recently described type of vasoconstrictor synergism in which precontraction with a non-5- HT receptor agonist yields an enhanced contractile response to serotonin which is mediated by previously inactive or "silent" 5-HT receptor subtypes is focused on. Expand
Serotonin and premature ejaculation: from physiology to patient management.
TLDR
Emerging clinical evidence indicates chronic and on-demand dosing of SSRIs has a beneficial effect for the treatment of men with PE, at least for paroxetine. Expand
Role of 5-hydroxytryptamine in prostaglandin E1-induced potentiation of hexobarbitone hypnosis in albino rats
TLDR
PGE1 potentiated, while diclofenac, a prostaglandin synthesis inhibitor, antagonized hexobarbitone hypnosis in rats, suggesting that this potentiation is 5HT mediated. Expand
