5-HT2A and 5-HT2C Receptors

The 5-HT (2A) and 5-HT (2C) receptors mediate effects of a large variety of compounds affecting depression, anxiety, hallucinations, dysthymia, sleep patterns, feeding behaviour and neuro-endocrine functions. Binding of such compounds to either 5-HT (2) receptor subtype induces processes that regulate receptor sensitivity.
