These three cells seemed to be part of a possible posterior sensory organ, probably functioning with 5-HT and other neurotransmitters.
Conversely, the activation of 5-HT receptor leads to the opening of receptor-gated ion channels, allowing [Ca.sup.2+] to enter neurons, where it participates in numerous processes such as protein kinase activation (31).
These findings demonstrate that 5-HT is not required for feeding suppression and body weight loss induced by liraglutide in mice.
Here, we hypothesize that the plastic changes in these receptors that occur after spinal cord injury might be affected by the restoration of 5-HT innervation from grafted 5-HT neurons so as to reverse or normalize these changes.
On the other hand, the raw data on the concentration of 5-HT and 5-HIAA as well as the expression of genes and proteins, after passing normality and homogeneity of variances tests, were subjected to a two-way ANOVA to determine any significant influences of the two parameters (photoperiod and LPS-treatment), followed by Fisher's least significant difference post-hoc test.
The classic opinion on the development of depression considered that it was related to the monoamine neurotransmitter and serotonin (5-HT) system dysfunction [31, 32].
Serotonin or 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) was chosen as the focus of this study for various reasons: first, because many behavioral disorders and the drugs used to treat them have been linked to serotonergic mechanisms [27, 38-40]; second, 5-HT projections and receptors have been described in multiple sites [14-16, 27], facilitating the search for the expression of related genes.
The 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT6) receptor messenger RNA (mRNA) occupy high level of receptors in the brain, which mediates the actions of the neurotransmitter 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT).
ii) G1463A polymorphism of the gene for human tryptophan hydroxylase type 2 enzyme and ii) polymorphism C(-1019)G in serotonin (5-HT) receptor gene 5-H[T.sub.1A].
In addition, we used a mouse model to study their effects on the release of dopamine (DA) and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) in the central nervous system.
