The mRNA of the gene, which encodes a receptor of 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin), is expressed within vascular smooth muscle, endothelial cells, and cardiomyocytes, and plays a role in vasoconstriction and cellular proliferation [32].
Post-operative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is associated with general anaesthesia with a very high incidence of 80% especially in high-risk groups.1 The stimulation of the 5-hydroxytryptamine type 3 (5-HT3) receptors in the gastrointestinal tract and central nervous system is said to be one leading factor in the genesis of emesis.2 That is why the drugs that act as antagonists to these receptors help in treating emesis.

As shown in Figure 1(b), no single mode can provide satisfactory separation of the highly polar compounds present in LSW (such as 5-hydroxytryptamine, peak 1) by conventional reverse-phase HPLC.
Red ginseng inhibits exercise-induced increase in 5-hydroxytryptamine synthesis and tryptophan hydroxylase expression in dorsal raphe of rats.
Participation of 5-hydroxytryptamine in pain-related behavior induced by nucleus pulposus applied on the nerve root in rats.
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.
5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is a potent vasoactive amine that plays pivotal roles in insulin secretion [17-19], energy metabolism [20], mitochondrial biogenesis [21], the immune system [22, 23], and vascular inflammation [24-27].

However, clozapine has an effect over serotoninergic pathways that stimulate the [5-HT.sub.1A] receptor (5-hydroxytryptamine) causing recirculation of gamma amino butyric acid in the nucleus accumbens leading to the inhibition of the dopaminergic neurons [22], related to the development of the disease.
