In human cortex and hippocampus area, [3H]5-HT (5 nM) labels 5-HT1A, 5-HT1D and 5-HT1E sites. After masking 5-HT1A receptors by 0.1 microM 8-OH-DPAT, the binding displaced by 0.1 microM 5-CT presumably represented 5-HT1D sites and the remaining binding 5-HT1E sites. In frontal cortex, 5-HT1A receptors represented the main binding in layers II and VI and a lower fraction in other layers. 5-HT1D and 5-HT1E sites, were more homogeneously distributed in layers II to VI (21-34% of specific [3H]5-HT… CONTINUE READING
