Entry term(s) 5-HT
5-hidroxitriptamina
Scope note: Mensajero y regulador bioquímico, sintetizado a partir del aminoácido esencial L-TRIPTÓFANO. En los humanos se encuentra principalmente en el sistema nervioso central, el tubo digestivo y las plaquetas. La serotonina interviene en diversas funciones fisiológicas importantes icomo la neurotransmisión, la movilidad gastrointestinal, la hemostasia y la integridad cardiovascular. Las múltiples familias de receptores (RECEPTORES DE SEROTONINA) explican su amplio espectro de acciones fisiológicas y la distribución de este mediador bioquímico.

Scope note: A biochemical messenger and regulator, synthesized from the essential amino acid L-TRYPTOPHAN. In humans it is found primarily in the central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, and blood platelets. Serotonin mediates several important physiological functions including neurotransmission, gastrointestinal motility, hemostasis, and cardiovascular integrity. Multiple receptor families (RECEPTORS, SEROTONIN) explain the broad physiological actions and distribution of this biochemical mediator.
