Sleep disorders [ICD9: 307.4, 327, 780.5; ICD10: F51, G47]
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. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins that stimulate adenylate cyclase.
BioChemical Class
