Selective up-regulation of 5-HT(1B/1D) receptors during organ culture of cerebral arteries.

Abstract

5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is thought to be involved in migraine headache and the pathophysiology of cerebrovascular diseases. Previous data show that organ culture induces a phenotypic change in cerebral vessels. Therefore we investigated if these changes also applied for the vasoconstrictive 5-HT receptors. Rat cerebral arteries express 5-HT2 receptors… (More)
