Literature on HTR6
5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptor 6, G protein-coupled; 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. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins that stimulate adenylate cyclase. It has a high affinity for tricyclic psychotropic drugs (By similarity). Controls pyramidal neurons migration during corticogenesis, through the regulation of CDK5 activity (By similarity). Is an activator of TOR signaling; 5-hydroxytryptamine receptors, G protein-coupled
Synonyms: HTR6, HTR6p, hHTR6, P50406, P50406p ...
