There is increasing evidence for a role of 5-hydroxytrypta-mine-6 (5-HT6) receptors in cognitive function. In the rat and human brain, 5-HT6 receptors are widely expressed and highly enriched in the basal ganglia. However, in the mouse brain, only very low levels of 5-HT6 receptor mRNA and receptor protein, measured by TaqMan reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and selective radioligand binding, could be detected, with no evidence of enrichment in the basal ganglia. The mouse…

Distribution of Serotonin Receptor of Type 6 (5-HT6) in Human Brain Post-mortem. A Pharmacology, Autoradiography and Immunohistochemistry Study
TLDR
The present findings showed the presence of a higher density of 5-HT6 receptors, as labeled by [125I]SB-258585, in striatum than in hippocampus and prefrontal cortex, and specifically within the neuronal body, which would suggest that striatum is one of the major potential CNS targets linked to 5- HT6 receptor modulation.
The Serotonin-6 Receptor as a Novel Therapeutic Target
TLDR
Preclinical studies provide support for the use of 5-HT6R ligands as promising medications to treat the cognitive dysfunction associated with Alzheimer's disease, obesity, depression, and anxiety.
Distribution, level, pharmacology, regulation, and signaling of 5‐HT6 receptors in rats and marmosets with special reference to an experimental model of parkinsonism
TLDR
Evidence for significant similarities in the distribution, level, pharmacology, and regulation of 5‐HT6 receptors between rats and marmosets is provided.
Characterization and Reliability of [18F]2FNQ1P in Cynomolgus Monkeys as a PET Radiotracer for Serotonin 5-HT6 Receptors
TLDR
Preclinical results show that [18F]2FNQ1P is a good candidate to address 5-HT6 receptors in clinical studies.

A novel rat serotonin (5-HT6) receptor: molecular cloning, localization and stimulation of cAMP accumulation.
TLDR
Cloned a rat cDNA encoding a functional serotonin receptor (5-HT6), its coding sequence corresponds to a glycoprotein of 436 amino acids displaying significant homology with other cloned monoaminergic receptors, e.g., various serotonin receptors.
The distribution of 5-HT(6) receptors in rat brain: an autoradiographic binding study using the radiolabelled 5-HT(6) receptor antagonist [(125)I]SB-258585.
TLDR
The striatal binding sites seen in this study may be on intrinsic GABAergic or cholinergic neurones, or on terminals of projection neurones from the thalamus or cerebral cortex, and suggest a possible involvement of 5-HT(6) receptors in locomotor control, cognition, memory, and control of affect.

5‐HT6 receptor binding sites in schizophrenia and following antipsychotic drug administration: Autoradiographic studies with [125I]SB‐258585
TLDR
The lack of effect of schizophrenia or antipsychotic drug administration on [125I]SB‐258585 binding suggests that an altered receptor density does not contribute to any involvement which the 5‐HT6R may have in the disease or its treatment.
Cloning and expression of a novel serotonin receptor with high affinity for tricyclic psychotropic drugs.
TLDR
The distinct structural and pharmacological properties of this receptor site indicate that it represents a completely novel subtype of serotonin receptor, and it is likely that this receptor may play a role in several neuropsychiatric disorders that involve serotonergic systems.
Cloning, Characterization, and Chromosomal Localization of a Human 5‐HT6 Serotonin Receptor
TLDR
Comparison of genomic and cDNA clones for the human 5‐HT6 receptor reveals an RsaI restriction fragment length polymorphism within the coding region, suggesting that these may be closely linked.
Characterization of [(125)I]-SB-258585 binding to human recombinant and native 5-HT(6) receptors in rat, pig and human brain tissue.
TLDR
High affinity, selective radioligand which can be used to label both recombinant and native 5-HT(6) receptors and will facilitate further characterization of this receptor subtype in animal and human tissues is found.
