Evidence for a control of plasma serotonin levels by 5-hydroxytryptamine(2B) receptors in mice.

Abstract

A correlation between high plasma serotonin levels and total pulmonary resistance was reported in more than 80% of pulmonary hypertensive patients. When submitted to chronic hypoxia (10% O(2) for more than 3 weeks), wild-type mice develop lung vascular remodeling and pulmonary hypertension. We previously reported that, in contrast, the development of these… (More)
