5-Hydroxytryptamine (serotonin; 5-HT)2 receptor agonists such as (±)-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane (DOI) injected systemically or directly into frontal cortex, elicit stereotyped head movements that are mediated by 5-HT2A receptors. Chronic administration of 5-HT2A receptor antagonists can produce either a down-regulation, e.g., d-2-bromolysergic acid diethylamide (BOL) or an up-regulation, e.g., α-phenyl-10(2-phenylethyl)-4-piperidinemethanol (MDL11,939) of cortical 5-HT2A… 
Pharmacological and behavioral characterization of the 5-HT2A receptor in C57BL/6N mice
TLDR
The current chronic agonist treatment study demonstrated an important similarity between the 5-HT2A receptor in mice, rats, and rabbits, while antagonist treatment revealed an interesting difference from previous studies in rabbits.
A double dissociation in the effects of 5-HT2A and 5-HT2C receptors on the acquisition and expression of conditioned defeat in Syrian hamsters.
TLDR
Results suggest that serotonin acts at separate 5-HT2 receptors to facilitate the acquisition and expression of defeat-induced changes in social behavior.
Phospholipase C mediates (±)-1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane (DOI)-, but not lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)-elicited head bobs in rabbit medial prefrontal cortex
The phenethylamine and indoleamine classes of hallucinogens demonstrate distinct pharmacological properties, although they share a serotonin(2A) (5-HT(2A)) receptor mechanism of action (MOA). The
5-HT2A Receptors in the Central Nervous System
TLDR
A thorough pharmacological analysis of the available data arguing in favour of the involvement of constitutive activity of 5-HT2A receptors, mostly in learning tasks is proposed and the functional significance of such an activity is discussed.
Potential role of cortical 5-HT2A receptors in the anxiolytic action of cyamemazine in benzodiazepine withdrawal
TLDR
The anxiolytic efficacy of cyamemazine in benzodiazepine withdrawal can be due to a 5-HT(2AR) antagonistic activity at the cortical level.
Intrahippocampal LSD accelerates learning and desensitizes the 5-HT2A receptor in the rabbit, Romano et al.
TLDR
The slight, short-lived enhancement of learning produced by LSD appears to be due to the development of desensitization of the 5-HT2A receptor within the hippocampus as a result of repeated administration of its agonist (LSD).
Pharmacological Analysis in Favour of a Physiological Role for the Constitutive Activity of 5-HT 2A Receptors in Learning
TLDR
A thorough pharmacological analysis of the available data arguing in favour of the involvement of constitutive activity of 5-HT2A receptors, mostly in learning tasks is proposed and the functional significance of such an activity is discussed.
Serotonergic and dopaminergic distinctions in the behavioral pharmacology of (±)-1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane (DOI) and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)
TLDR
Although DOI and LSD differed in their receptor binding properties, activation of 5-HT(2A) and D(1) receptors was a common mechanism for eliciting head bob behavior, implicate these two receptors in the mechanism of action of hallucinogens.
5-HT2A receptor antagonism by MDL 11,939 during inescapable stress prevents subsequent exaggeration of acoustic startle response and reduced body weight in rats
TLDR
A critical role is suggested of the central 5-HT2A receptor activation in developing the pathophysiology associated with elevated ASR and reduced body weight during stress, as suggested in the findings of the learned helplessness stress model in rats.
Repeated administration of Yokukansan inhibits DOI-induced head-twitch response and decreases expression of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)2A receptors in the prefrontal cortex
TLDR
Findings suggest that the inhibition of DOI-induced head-twitch response by YKS may be mediated, in part, by altered expression of 5-HT2A receptors in the prefrontal cortex, which suggests the involvement of the5-HT system in psychopharmacological effects of YKS.

TLDR
The findings suggest that the HTR produced by the direct injection of serotonergic agonists into the medial prefrontal cortex is, in part, mediated by the activation of 5-HT2A receptors, which is consistent with other evidence that suggests a functional antagonism between5-HT1A and 5- HT2A receptor activation.
Selective and divergent regulation of cortical 5-HT(2A) receptors in rabbit.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that 5-HT(2A) receptor antagonists can both down- and up-regulate the density of cortical 5-hydroxytryptamine(2) receptor density and these changes in receptor density have functional consequences for 5- HT(2a) receptor-mediated behaviors.
Time-course of recovery of 5-HT1A receptors and changes in 5-HT1A receptor mRNA after irreversible inactivation with EEDQ.
TLDR
Significant increases in 5-HT1A receptor mRNA levels were observed as early as 12 h after treatment in all regions but the magnitude of these increases varied and the time-courses of recovery of 5- HT1A receptors and changes in RNA levels were not parallel in individual regions.
Up-regulation of 5-HT2 receptors in the rat brain by repeated administration of SR 46349B, a selective 5-HT2 receptor antagonist.
TLDR
Data showed that an up-regulation of 5-HT2 receptors occurred in rats following repeated treatment with a selective 5- HT2 receptor antagonist, which might implicate pre-translational regulation.
Antagonist binding at 5-HT(2A) and 5-HT(2C) receptors in the rabbit: high correlation with the profile for the human receptors.
TLDR
It was concluded that the rabbit provides an appropriate animal model for studies attempting to predict the pharmacology of human 5-HT(2A) and 5- HT(2C) receptors in humans.
Rapid desensitization and down-regulation of 5-HT2 receptors by DOM treatment.
TLDR
A refinement in the receptor regulation theory is proposed in view of the reported anomalous 5-HT2 receptor regulation by antagonists and the regular regulation by agonists.
Effects of imipramine and serotonin-2 agonists and antagonists on serotonin-2 and beta-adrenergic receptors following noradrenergic or serotonergic denervation.
TLDR
Imipramine-induced down-regulation of 5- HT2 receptors may not involve presynaptic 5-HT mechanisms, and imipramines-induced alterations in 5,7-DHT2 sensitivity as reflected in the quipazine-induced head shake may, in part, be influenced by beta-adrenergic receptors.
The effect of chronic imipramine administration on the densities of 5-HT1A and 5-HT2 receptors and the abundancies of 5-HT receptor and transporter mRNA in the cortex, hippocampus and dorsal raphe of three strains of rat
TLDR
The effects of imipramine on the levels of cortical and hippocampal 5- HT1A and 5-HT2 receptors and their transcripts appear to be strain-dependent, and the implications of these findings are discussed.
Repeated administration of SR 46349B, a selective 5-hydroxytryptamine2 antagonist, up-regulates 5-hydroxytryptamine2 receptors in mouse brain.
TLDR
It is suggested for the first time that an up-regulation of 5-HT2 receptors can occur after repeated treatment with a selective 5- HT2 receptor antagonist.
(1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4 iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane)-induced head-twitches in the rat are mediated by 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) 2A receptors: modulation by novel 5-HT2A/2C antagonists, D1 antagonists and 5-HT1A agonists.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that 5-HT2A receptors mediate HTW in rats and that both D1 and D2 receptors as well as (postsynaptic) 5- HT1A receptors play a role in their expression.
