Cyclic GMP generation mediated by 5-HT-2 receptors via nitric oxide-dependent pathway and its effect on the desensitization of 5-HT-2 receptors in C6 glioma cells


Serotonin (5-HT)-2 receptor-mediated cGMP generation was investigated in comparison with calcium (Ca2+) mobilization in C6 glioma cells. 5-HT enhanced cGMP generation, and risperidone and ketanserin potently blocked the response. These results indicate that 5-HT-2 receptors are responsible for the cGMP generation. 5-HT-induced cGMP production was completely… (More)
