Serotonin plays important physiological functions at the intestinal level. However, nothing is known concerning its inactivation mechanisms in the human intestine. So, the aim of this work was to characterize the uptake of serotonin at the apical and basolateral membranes of human intestinal epithelial (Caco-2) cells. Uptake of [3H]serotonin at the apical… CONTINUE READING
