Background: The human serotonin receptor 5-HT4 is a G protein-coupled receptor. 5-HT4 receptors can be found in the central nervous system and in peripheral tissues such as the alimentary tract, urinary bladder, heart and adrenal gland. 5-HT4 ligands may prove to be therapeutic in the treatment of disorders such as cardiac arrhythmias, irritable bowel syndrome and urinary incontinence.
Application: Functional assays
