Evidence that genetic variation in 5-HT transporter expression is linked to changes in 5-HT2A receptor function.

Abstract:

Variability in expression of the 5-HT transporter (5-HTT) gene in the human population has been associated with a range of behavioural phenotypes. The underlying mechanisms are unclear but may involve changes in 5-HT receptor levels and/or signalling. The present study used a novel 5-HTT overexpressing transgenic mouse to test the hypothesis that variability in 5-HTT expression may alter 5-HT(2A) receptor function. In wildtype mice, the 5-HT(2) receptor agonist DOI increased regional brain mR...
