Radioligand binding and photoaffinity labelling studies show a direct interaction of phenothiazines at 5-HT3 receptors.

The effects of a range of phenothiazines were examined on 5-hydroxytryptamine3 (5-HT3) receptors in membranes from NIE-115 neuroblastoma cells using radioligand binding. Chlorpromazine, fluphenazine, perphenazine, trifluoperazine and prochlorperazine inhibited specific binding of both the 5-HT3 receptor antagonist [3H]GR65630 and agonist [3H]meta… (More)
