|Function||G-protein coupled receptor for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). Also functions as a receptor for various drugs and psychoactive substances, including ergot alkaloid derivatives, 1- 2,5,-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl-2-aminopropane (DOI) and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). Ligand binding causes a conformation change that triggers signaling via guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) and modulates the activity of down-stream effectors. Beta-arrestin family members inhibit signaling via G proteins and mediate activation of alternative signaling pathways. Signaling activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system that modulates the activity of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase and down-stream signaling cascades and promotes the release of Ca(2+) ions from intracellular stores. Regulates neuronal activity via the activation of short transient receptor potential calcium channels in the brain, and thereby modulates the activation of pro-opiomelacortin neurons and the release of CRH that then regulates the release of corticosterone. Plays a role in the regulation of appetite and eating behavior, responses to anxiogenic stimuli and stress. Plays a role in insulin sensitivity and glucose homeostasis.|

Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT), a neurotransmitter,elicits a wide array of physiological effects by binding to severalreceptor subtypes, including the 5-HT2 family ofseven-transmembrane-spanning, G-protein-coupled receptors, whichactivate phospholipase C and D signaling pathways. This geneencodes the 2C subtype of serotonin receptor and its mRNA issubject to multiple RNA editing events, where genomically encodedadenosine residues are converted to inosines. RNA editing ispredicted to alter amino acids within the second intracellular loopof the 5-HT2C receptor and generate receptor isoforms that differin their ability to interact with G proteins and the activation ofphospholipase C and D signaling cascades, thus modulatingserotonergic neurotransmission in the central nervous system.Studies in humans have reported abnormalities in patterns of 5-HT2Cediting in depressed suicide victims.
