Subcellular distribution of 5-HT(1B) and 5-HT(7) receptors in the mouse suprachiasmatic nucleus.

Abstract

The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), a circadian oscillator, receives glutamatergic afferents from the retina and serotonergic (5-HT) afferents from the median raphe. 5-HT(1B) and 5-HT(7) receptor agonists inhibit the effects of light on SCN circadian activity. Electron microscopic (EM) immunocytochemical procedures were used to determine the subcellular… (More)
