Effects of flesinoxan on corticosteroid receptor expression in the rat hippocampus.


Many agents that influence serotonergic neurotransmission modulate expression of hippocampal corticosteroid receptors. We have studied the effect of the specific 5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT(1A), receptor agonist flesinoxan on mRNA for glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid receptors in the hippocampus and dorsal raphe nucleus. Since some responses to 5-HT(1A… (More)
