Testosterone as well as estrogen increases serotonin2A receptor mRNA and binding site densities in the male rat brain.

Abstract

Our previous findings in female rats suggest that the potent effects of sex steroids on mood and mental state may be mediated, in part, by the effect of estrogen on the 5-hydroxytryptamine2A receptor (5-HT2AR) in brain. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of acute (approximately 32h) sex steroid manipulation on central 5-HT2AR in the… (More)
