Serotonin 5-HT2C Receptors: Chemical Neuronatomy in the Mammalian Brain


Serotonin 5-HT 2C receptors belong to the 5-HT 2 family, which includes 5-HT 2A and 5-HT 2B receptors. All three share similarities in their molecular structure, pharmacology, and signal transduction pathways (Barnes and Sharp 1999; Hoyer et al. 1994). Initially named 5-HT 1C, based on the conventions for naming serotonin receptors at the time of its… (More)
