1. Endogenous 5-HT exerts a dual role in the pathogenesis of indomethacin-induced intestinal lesions: pro-ulcerogenic action via 5-HT3 receptors and anti-ulcerogenic action via 5-HT4 receptors.
2. This review presented that the 5HT4 RECEPTOR knockout mice show a correlation between 5-HT firing rate and depressive/resilience phenotypes.
3. These results show that prenatal stress and reduced 5-HT levels can alter 5-HT(4)R expression in the developing forebrain and that some 5-HT(4)R splice variants.
4. This study demonistrated that alternatively spliced multiple transcripts of 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor expression in heart.
5. Mucosal 5-HT(4) receptor activation can mediate the prokinetic and antinociceptive actions of 5-HT(4)R agonists.
6. Data indicate that most p11 expressing cells in cerebral cortex, hippocampus, cerebellum, & caudate-putamen express HTR1B or co-express HTR1B/HTR4, suggesting crucial role for p11 in modulating actions of serotonin via these receptor subtypes.
7. G protein activation by serotonin type 4 receptor dimers: evidence that turning on two protomers is more efficient.
8. -HT-R splice variants and beta-ARs are differentially regulated in the embryonic telencephalon
9. adaptive changes in cholinergic systems may circumvent the absence of 5-HTR(4) to maintain long-term memory under baseline conditions
10. After bulbectomy, 5-HT(4) receptor binding was increased in the ventral hippocampus but unchanged in the dorsal hippocampus, frontal and caudal caudate putamen
