HTR2, 5-HT2A
Description of Target:
The mammalian HTR2A (5-HT2A receptor) is a subtype of the 5-HT2 receptor that belongs to the serotonin receptor family and is a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR). This is the main excitatory receptor subtype among the GPCRs for serotonin (5-HT), although 5-HT2A may also have an inhibitory effect on certain areas such as the visual cortex and the orbit frontal cortex. This receptor was given importance first as the target of psychedelic drugs like LSD. Later it came back to prominence because it was also found to be mediating, at least partly, the action of many antipsychotic drugs, especially the atypical ones.5-HT2A also happens to be a necessary receptor for the spread of the human polyoma virus called JC virus. Sparkes et al. (1991) concluded that the gene is located on 13q14-q21 in man and on chromosome 14 in the mouse.
