Title: 5-HT1A AND 5-HT2C RECEPTOR GENE EXPRESSION AND FUNCTIONAL REGULATION DURING RAT HEPATOCYTE PROLIFERATION AND APOPTOSIS
Author: Pyroja, S; Paulose, C S
Abstract: The work is an attempt to understand the role of 5-HT, 5-HT1A and 5-HT2C receptors in the regulation of liver cell proliferation using in vivo and in vitro models. The work also focuses on the brain serotonergic changes associated with hapatocyte proliferation and apoptosis to delineate its regulatory function. The investigation of mechanisms involving different models of hepatocyte proliferation contributes to our knowledge about serotonergic regulation of cell growth, apoptosis and carcinogenesis of liver. The study reveals that the alteration of the 5-HT1A and 5-HT2C receptor function and gene expression in the brain stem, cerebral cortex and hypothalamus play an important role in the sympathetic regulation of cell proliferation, neoplastic transformation and apoptosis. The functional balance between 5-HT1A and 5-HT2C receptor plays an important role in regulating hepatocyte proliferation, neoplastic transformation and hepatic apoptosis. The regulatory role of 5-HT1A and 5-HT2C receptor during neoplastic transformation and apoptosis could lead to possible therapeutic intervention in the treatment of cancers and have immense clinical importance.
