|Function||G-protein coupled receptor for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). Also functions as a receptor for ergot alkaloid derivatives, various anxiolytic and antidepressant drugs and other psychoactive substances, such as 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, such as adenylate cyclase. Signaling inhibits adenylate cyclase activity. Arrestin family members inhibit signaling via G proteins and mediate activation of alternative signaling pathways. Regulates the release of 5-hydroxytryptamine, dopamine and acetylcholine in the brain, and thereby affects neural activity, nociceptive processing, pain perception, mood and behavior. Besides, plays a role in vasoconstriction of cerebral arteries.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Detected in cerebral artery smooth muscle cells (at protein level). Detected in brain cortex, striatum, amygdala, medulla, hippocampus, caudate nucleus and putamen|

The neurotransmitter serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT)exerts a wide variety of physiologic functions through amultiplicity of receptors and may be involved in humanneuropsychiatric disorders such as anxiety, depression, ormigraine. These receptors consist of several main groups subdividedinto several distinct subtypes on the basis of their pharmacologiccharacteristics, coupling to intracellular second messengers, anddistribution within the nervous system (Zifa and Fillion, 1992[PubMed 1359584]). The serotonergic receptors belong to themultigene family of receptors coupled to guanine nucleotide-bindingproteins.
