In the present study, we have used in situ hybridization to examine the distribution of serotonin (5-HT) receptors in rat dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons. Within DRG neurons, mRNAs for 5-HT1B, 5-HT1D, 5-HT2A, 5-HT2B, 5-HT3B and 5-HT4 receptors were readily detected in small (<25 microm), medium (25-45 microm) and large (>45 microm) diameter neurons. In contrast mRNAs for 5-HT1A, 5-HT1E, 5-HT2C, 5-HT5A, 5-HT5B, 5-HT6 and 5-HT7 receptors were undetectable in these neurons. The present study… CONTINUE READING
