FunctionThis is one of the several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin), a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a hormone, and a mitogen. This receptor is a ligand-gated ion channel, which when activated causes fast, depolarizing responses. It is a cation-specific, but otherwise relatively nonselective, ion channel.
Tissue specificityExpressed in the brain cortex, in the caudate nucleus, the hyppocampus, the thalamus and the amygdala. Detected in the kidney and testis as well as in monocytes of the spleen, small and large intestine, uterus, prostate, ovary and placenta.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ligand-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.9) family. 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor (TC 1.A.9.2) subfamily. HTR3B sub-subfamily.
modificationsN-glycosylation required for membrane localization.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Presumably retained within the endoplasmic reticulum unless complexed with HTR3A.

Pre-incubation of ab39629 with its immunizing peptide (at 10uM) results in a loss of immunoreactivity (lower panel).
HEK 293 cells transfected with 5HT3B receptor were stained with ab39629 diluted 1/500 and anti-rabbit secondary antibody conjugated to Alexa Fluor 488 diluted 1/1000(green). Nuclei are labelled with Hoescht 33258 (blue).
Immunohistochemistry of human hippocampus stained with ab39269 diluted 1/500. Immunoreactivity with 5HT3B receptor can be seen in (i)CA1 field, (ii)CA2, (iii)CA3 and (iv)CA4/dentate gyrus.
