Abstract

In situ hybridization histochemistry (ISHH) was used to study the distribution of various 5-HT1 receptor messenger RNAs (mRNA) in the mammalian nervous system. Since the cDNAs encoding the different 5-HT1 receptors, have not been cloned in one single species, brains of the species appropriate for the 5-HT1 receptor messenger RNA (mRNA) have been used. Thus, 5-HT1B and 5-HT1D alpha mRNA were determined in rat and mouse brain, while 5-HT1E and 5-HT1F mRNA were studied in human (and monkey) and guinea-pig brain, respectively. 5-HT1B and 5-HT1D alpha hybridization signals were predominantly present in caudate-putamen and cortical areas; in addition, 5-HT1B mRNA was also detected in hippocampus, ..
