Identification and role of serotonin 5-HT1A and 5-HT1B receptors in primary cultures of rat embryonic rostral raphe nucleus neurons.

Abstract

Autoregulatory mechanisms affecting serotonin [5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)] release and synthesis during the early period of development were investigated in dissociated cell cultures raised from embryonic rostral rat rhombencephalon. The presence of 5-HT1A and 5-HT1B receptors in serotoninergic neurons was assessed using binding assays. The involvement of 5… (More)
