5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) modulates gastric motility and gastric emptying via a variety of 5-HT receptor subtypes. However, regional and functional differences among 5-HT receptor subtypes in the rat stomach are not fully investigated. Thus, we aimed to characterize 5-HT receptor subtypes involved in the 5-HT-induced contractions in the isolated antral, corporal and fundic circular muscles of the rat stomach by measuring the contractile force. 5-HT induced concentration-dependent contractions… CONTINUE READING
