Details for anatomical structure: posterior raphe nucleus of midbrain

EndoNet ID: ENC00585

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: serotonin

        Influenced by:

        • 5-HT-1A
          in posterior_raphe_nucleus_of_midbrain
          • The activation of somatodendritic autoreceptors inhibit the electric activity of serotoninergic neurons, thereby reducing serotonin release and neurotransmission. [1]

      Receptors

      • Receptor: 5-HT-1A

        • Somatodendritic 5-HT-1A autoreceptors located on the 5-hydroxytryptaminergic neurones in the dorsal raphe nucleus. [2]
        • 5-HT-1A activation results in the opening of the K+ channels, thereby producing membrane hyperpolarization and a decrease in membrane resistance. [3]
        • The activation of somatodendritic autoreceptors inhibit the electric activity of serotoninergic neurons, thereby reducing serotonin release and neurotransmission. [1]

        Influences:

        • serotonin
          • The activation of somatodendritic autoreceptors inhibit the electric activity of serotoninergic neurons, thereby reducing serotonin release and neurotransmission. [1]
