      Información preliminar 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, also commonly known as serotonin) is synthesized in enterochromaffin cells in the intestine and in serotonergic nerve terminals. In the periphery, 5-HT mediates gastrointestinal motility, platelet aggregation, and contraction of blood vessels. Many functions of the central nervous system are influenced by 5-HT, including sleep, motor activity, sensory perception, arousal and appetite. A family of 12 GPCRs and one ion channel mediate the biological effects of 5-HT (Hoyer et al., 1994). The 5-HT2B receptor, which couples to Gq/11 to increase intracellular calcium, is expressed in embryonic and adult cardiovascular tissues, gut and brain from the rat, mouse, and human species. A role for 5-HT2B receptors was suggested in the cardiopathy associated with fenfluramine (Fitzgerald et al., 2000). Chemicon's cloned human 5-HT2B -expressing cell line is made in the CHO host, which supports high levels of recombinant 5-HT2B expression on the cell surface. Thus, the cell line is an ideal tool for screening for antagonists of interactions between 5-HT2B and its ligands.

      Número de Entrez Gene
      Resumen de Entrez Gene Multiple receptor subtypes of serotonin neurotransmitters with multiple physiologic functions have been recognized. The 5-HT-2 receptors mediate many of the central and peripheral physiologic functions of serotonin. Cardiovascular effects include contraction of blood vessels and shape changes in platelets; central nervous system effects include neuronal sensitization to tactile stimuli and mediation of hallucinogenic effects of phenylisopropylamine hallucinogens.[supplied by OMIM]

      Resumen UniProt FUNCTION: SwissProt: P41595 # This 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 mediates its action by association with G proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.
      SIZE: 481 amino acids; 54298 Da
      SUBUNIT: Interacts with MPDZ.
      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Detected in most peripheral organs. Only low expression levels were found in the brain.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P41595 ## Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.

      Información de almacenamiento y transporte
      Condiciones de almacenamiento Place cells in liquid nitrogen immediately upon receipt. Maintain frozen in liquid nitrogen for up to 5 years. Thaw cells rapidly by removing from liquid nitrogen and immediately immersing in a 37ºC water bath. Immediately after ice has thawed, sterilize the exterior of the vial with 70% ethanol. Transfer contents of the vial to a T75 flask containing 20 mL growth media, and place in a humidified 37°C incubator with 5% CO2.. After 8-24 h, cells will adhere to the plate, at which time the media should be replaced to remove residual DMSO. Cells are passaged by washing with Ca++ and Mg++-free HBSS (10 mL/T75), incubating with 0.05% trypsin/0.2 g/L EDTA (1 mL/T75) for 5-10 minutes at 37°C, and rapping the side of the flask to dislodge the cells. Neutralize the trypsin by addition of 4 volumes growth media. Cells are typically passaged 1:10 with every 3-4 days, and should be passaged at least once after thawing prior to use in calcium flux assays.
