Background of Serotonin receptor 3A (HTR3A) antibody

5-Hydroxytryptamine Receptor 3A (5-HT3A) belongs to the super-family of ligand-gated ion channels. Serotonin receptors, other than 5-HT3 subtype belong to the super-family of G-protein coupled receptors. The 5-HT3 receptor is formed by five subunits arranged around a pore forming unit. Receptors could be either monomeric, such as 5-HT3A or heteromeric entities like 5-HT3A/B. Indeed, the type of channel formed displays different pharmacological and electrophysiological characteristics. To date, five 5-HT3 subunits have been identified 5-HT3A-E, which show variability in the N-terminus and in the transmembrane region. 5-HT3A and 5-HT3B are the best characterized among the different types. In general, 5-HT3 receptors are located in the peripheral and central nervous system, in lymphocytes and intestil enterochromaffine cells. In presyptic neurons, activation of these receptors leads to an increase in intracellular Ca2+ (by both influx and mobilization of intracellular stores), and modulates the release of a number of neurotransmitters and neuropeptides. At the postsyptic level, activation leads to membrane depolarization. The 5-HT3A subunit is expressed in GABAergic and enkephalinergic neurons in the spil dorsal horn thereby marking its possible antinociceptive effect. 5-HT3 receptors have become important targets for which to develop treatments regarding irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), side effects resulting from chemotherapeutic treatment, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
