Target

  • Relevance

    Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, or 5-HT) is a monoamine neurotransmitter synthesised in serotonergic neurons in the central nervous system and enterochromaffin cells in the gastrointestinal tract. Serotonin plays an important part in the biochemistry of depression, migraine, bipolar disorder and anxiety. It is also believed to be influential on sexuality and appetite. 5-HT is generally thought not to be released from synaptic terminal buttons in the manner of classical neurotransmission but from serotonergic varacosities into the extra neuronal space. From here it is free to diffuse over a relatively large region of space (>20µm) and activate 5-HT receptors located on the dendrites, cell bodies and presynaptic terminals of adjacent neurons. Serotonergic action is terminated primarily via uptake of 5-HT from the synapse. This is through the specific monoamine transporter for 5-HT, 5-HT reuptake transporter, on the presynaptic neuron. The pharmacology of 5-HT is extremely complex, with its actions being mediated by a large and diverse range of 5-HT receptors.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Answer

Thank you for your call last week and for your patience while I have been in touch with the lab regarding your enquiry.

There is a mistake on the datasheet, and the antibody was raised against serotonin conjugated to a protein carrier atthe amino terminus. There was no nitro group in the immunogen. I will have the datasheet updated as soon as possible, and I apologize for this error and any confusion.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything else that you need and I'll be happy to help further.
