OBJECTIVE We sought to investigate the expression of cannabinoid receptors in human placenta and BeWo choriocarcinoma cells and study their role in the regulation of the serotonin transporter. STUDY DESIGN Expression of the 2 types of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) in human placenta and BeWo cells was investigated by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and Northern blot analysis. The involvement of the receptors in the regulation of the serotonin transporter expression was… CONTINUE READING
