Related Product Information for
anti-HTR1B antibody
5-HT2B, a Serotonin Receptor, activates phospholipase C upon binding serotonin, which results in a rise in intracellular calcium. It is known that 5-HT2B regulates cardiovascular function during development and in adulthood; mice lacking functional 5-HT2B receptors died of heart defects during gestation or neonatally, and adult mutant mice displayed cardiopathy, including myocyte disarray and ventricular dilation.

NCBI Summary for HTR1B
This gene encodes one of the several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) that belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Serotonin is a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a hormone, and a mitogen. Serotonin receptors mediate many of the central and peripheral physiologic functions of serotonin, including regulation of cardiovascular functions and impulsive behavior. Population and family-based analyses of a minor allele (glutamine-to-stop substitution, designated Q20*) which blocks expression of this protein, and knockout studies in mice, suggest a role for this gene in impulsivity. However, other factors, such as elevated testosterone levels, may also be involved. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]
UniProt Comments for HTR1B
5-HT(2B): 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. Plays a role in the regulation of impulsive behavior. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
