The molecular makeup of the serotonin 5-HT(3) receptor (5-HT(3)R) channel was investigated in rat hippocampal CA1 interneurons in slices using single-cell RT-PCR and patch-clamp recording techniques. We tested for the expression of the 5-HT(3A) (both short and long splice variants) and 5-HT(3B) subunits, as well as the expression of the alpha4 subunit of the neuronal nicotinic ACh receptors (nAChRs), the latter of which has been shown to co-assemble with the 5-HT(3A) subunit in heterologous… CONTINUE READING
