Glutamate receptor activation is involved in 5-HT2 agonist-induced Arc gene expression in the rat cortex.
Brain 5-HT regulates the expression of gene transcription factor as well as novel effector immediate early genes (IEGs). The 5-HT regulation of the gene transcription factor IEG, c-fos, involves activation of 5-HT2A and ionotropic glutamate receptors. Here, we investigate whether these receptors are also involved in the regulation of the effector IEG, Arc. In rats, the 5-HT2 agonist DOI induced a marked increase in expression of Arc mRNA in a variety of cortical regions. This effect was block...Expand abstract
