Excitatory and inhibitory 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptors expressed in the isolated porcine uterine muscles.


5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptors mediating excitatory and inhibitory actions of 5-HT on contractility of uterine strips from non-pregnant pigs were characterized. Expression of 5-HT(2A) and 5-HT(7) receptors was examined by molecular biological study. 5-HT-containing cells were observed immunohistochemically. In the spontaneously contracting uterine… (More)
