Role of 5-HT 2B receptors in cardiomyocyte apoptosis in noradrenaline-induced cardiomyopathy in rats.

Abstract

1. Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) plays important roles in the development of cardiac hypertrophy via activation of 5-HT receptors. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of 5-HT(2B) receptors in the development of cardiomyocyte apoptosis and hypertrophy associated with noradrenaline (NA) overload. 2. Cardiac hypertrophy was induced… (More)
