Pharmacological profile of octopamine and 5HT receptors on the lateral oviducts of the cockroach, Periplaneta americana
TLDR
Antagonist studies revealed that the 5HT receptor on the cockroach oviduct most resembles the mammalian 5HT2 receptor, which indicates that the octopamine receptor is of theOctopamine-2 type.
Octopamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine mediate hemocytic phagocytosis and nodule formation via eicosanoids in the beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua.
TLDR
It is suggested that octopamine and 5-HT can mediate hemocytic phagocytosis and nodule formation through a downstream signal pathway relayed by eicosanoids in S. exigua.
5‐Hydroxytryptamine‐sensitive adenylate cyclase affects phagocytosis in cockroach hemocytes
TLDR
A pharmacological profile suggests that the receptor present on the cockroach hemocytes is more similar to a 5-HT receptor than an octopamine receptor, which may result in either an activation or inhibition of phagocytosis activities.

TLDR
These structure-activity studies suggest that the specificity of 5-HT resides in the 5-hydroxyindole moiety which binds the molecule to the receptor while the positively charged ethylamine side chain is responsible for inducing the hormonal effect.
THE ACTION OF 5‐HYDROXYTRYPTAMINE AND RELATED COMPOUNDS ON THE ACTIVITY OF RETZIUS CELLS OF THE LEECH Hirudo medicinalis
TLDR
It is suggested that these compounds may act by a different mechanism from the 5‐hydroxylated indoles, perhaps involving a different receptor.
SEPARATE 5‐HYDROXYTRYPTAMINE RECEPTORS ON THE SALIVARY GLAND OF THE BLOWFLY ARE LINKED TO THE GENERATION OF EITHER CYCLIC ADENOSINE 3‘,5’‐MONOPHOSPHATE OR CALCIUM SIGNALS
TLDR
It is concluded that 5‐HT acts on two separate receptors, a 5‐ HT1 receptor acting through calcium and a 5-HT2 receptor which mediates its effects through cyclic AMP.

Analysis of competitive antagonism when this property occurs as part of a pharmacological resultant
TLDR
The method is general to the extent that it allows analysis of competitive antagonism in combination with all types of post‐receptor intervention and incorporates tests for validating its application and it is independent of agonist concentration‐effect curve shape, analogous to Schild plot‐analysis of simple competition.
Identification of serotonin M-receptor subtypes and their specific blockade by a new class of drugs
TLDR
A new class of drugs that selectively block serotonin M-receptors on peripheral neurones are described, some of which are the most potent of any pharmacological class yet reported.
