Département d obstétrique gynécologie, Faculte de Medecine, Université de Montréal and Centre de Recherche, Centre hospitalier de l Université de Montréal CHUM Hôpital Saint Luc, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Life Sci 81:1627-37. 2007..Specific roles played by 5-HT in mammalian reproduction remain to be further investigated, and now span from steroidogenesis and oocyte maturation to early embryonic development...
- Intracellular cAMP and calcium signaling by serotonin in mouse cumulus-oocyte complexesPascal Amireault
Départment d Obstétrique Gynécologie, Universite de Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Mol Pharmacol 68:1678-87. 2005..Our results show that 5-HT may be a local regulator in mouse cumulus-oocyte complexes through its actions on cAMP and Ca2+ signaling, as mediated by 5-HT2A, 5-HT2B, and 5-HT7 receptors...

J Cell Sci 115:311-20. 2002..Our work sheds light on the diversity of upstream pathways leading to activation of MPF and provides a unique model whereby the onset of meiosis reinitiation is associated with an increase, not a decrease, in oocyte cAMP levels...
