Description

A comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of our current understanding of the molecular and structural biology of 5-HT receptors and their potential use for drug discovery. The authors describe the anatomical, cellular, and subcellular distribution of 5-HT receptors and demonstrate a powerful approach to elucidating their physiological role using knockout mice in which the 5-HT receptors were deleted. They also review our understanding of the physiological role(s) of 5-HT receptors based mainly on studies performed in genetically engineered mice. Highlights include discussions of the behavioral phenotypes of 5-HT receptor knockout animals, the molecular biology and pharmacology of 5-HT receptors, and insights into the complexity of 5-HT receptor signal transduction.show more

Review quote

From the reviews: "This is a compilation of reviews regarding various aspects of serotonin receptor structure and function. ... As a set of reviews, the book can be read by a broad scientific audience. Material of interest to senior scientists and research fellows is present. ... Investigators wishing an up-to-date review of this field will find this book valuable. Those with selected interest, whether evolutionary or structural, will also find useful material. ... is a good, comprehensive set of reviews. ... overall, it is a valuable book."

Back cover copy

The recent cloning and identification of a large number of serotonin (5-HT) receptors-a major family of therapeutic targets-holds out the possibility of developing novel, subtype-selective 5-HT receptor agonists and antagonists for use as psychiatric, cardiovascular, and neurological medications. In The Serotonin Receptors: From Molecular Pharmacology to Human Therapeutics, leading experts comprehensively examine our current understanding of the molecular and structural biology of 5-HT receptors and their pharmacological use. The authors describe the anatomical, cellular, and subcellular distribution of 5-HT receptors and demonstrate a powerful approach to elucidating their physiological role using knockout mice in which the 5-HT receptors were deleted. They also review our understanding of the physiological role(s) of 5-HT receptors based mainly on studies performed in genetically engineered mice. Highlights include discussions of the behavioral phenotypes of 5-HT receptor knockout animals, the molecular biology and pharmacology of 5-HT receptors, and insights into the complexity of 5-HT receptor signal transduction. Comprehensive and state of the art, The Serotonin Receptors: From Molecular Pharmacology to Human Therapeutics provides an illuminating "snapshot" of the 5-HT receptor field today and prospects for the future, taking it from the genomic to a systems level of understanding.show more
