Details for anatomical structure: nucleus accumbens

EndoNet ID: ENC00161

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/hormone/ENH00000

It is also possible to use the search of EndoNet to link to the right detail page. The URL should look like

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/search/ENC00000
If the search pattern is unambigious the user is directed to the corresponding detail page.

    Substructures

      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: neuromedin N

      • Hormone: PAI-2

      • Hormone: cholecystokinin

        Influenced by:

        • 5-HT3 receptor
          in frontal_lobe
          • 5-HT mediated activation of 5-HT-3 receptors enhance the release of cholecystokinin in synaptosomes of the rat nucleus accumbens and cerebral cortex. [1]
      • Hormone: cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript protein

        Influenced by:

        • 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 4
          in nucleus_accumbens
          • Stimulation of the 5-HT4 receptors mediate an increase in the mRNA levels of the CART protein in the nucleus accumbens. [2]

      Receptors

      • Receptor: NT-R2

      • Receptor: neurotensin receptor type 1

      • Receptor: calcitonin receptor

      • Receptor: 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 4

        Influences:

        • cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript protein
          • Stimulation of the 5-HT4 receptors mediate an increase in the mRNA levels of the CART protein in the nucleus accumbens. [2]
      • Receptor: dopamine receptor D3

      • Receptor: 5-HT3 receptor

        Influences:

        • dopamine
          • Stimulation of 5-HT-3 receptors mediate a dose-dopendent increase of DA release. [3]
