Evidence for serotonin influencing the thalamic infiltration of mast cells in rat.


Serotonin (5-HT) is involved in neuroimmunomodulation. We analyzed the effects of sumatriptan, a 5-HT(1B/1D) receptor agonist, and ondansetron, a 5-HT(3) receptor antagonist, on thalamic mast cell (TMC) population, the only immunocytes known to infiltrate the brain in physiological conditions. Only sumatriptan was effective, significantly increasing TMC… (More)
