Serotonin Receptor Technologies

  title={Serotonin Receptor Technologies},
  author={Wolfgang Blenau and Arnd Baumann},
Serotonin receptors—with the exception of the 5-HT3 receptor—are members of the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily. These membrane proteins participate in a wide range of signal transduction pathways. Alterations of their activities often occur in pathological and psychopathological disorders. Therefore, these receptors determine major targets for drug discovery. Currently, the concept of GPCR oligomerization has become widely accepted. Functional heteromers have key significance for… CONTINUE READING
