With the increasing number of 5-HT receptors recently identified, using molecular biology techniques, the classification of 5-HT receptors is under review. An integrated approach is proposed to include operational and transductional as well as structural criteria for definitive receptor characterization. On this basis the existence of as many as seven classes of 5-HT receptor are recognized although only the 5-HT1, 5-HT2 and 5-HT3 receptor classes are well defined.
