    ..These data indicate that astrocytes in culture and in vivo are capable of 5-HT uptake via the previously characterised 'neuronal' serotonin transporter...

    Biochemistry Department, Imperial College, London SW7 2AZ, UK
    Brain Res Mol Brain Res 61:90-9. 1998
    ..These results indicate that although astrocytes express mRNA for each of the five 5-HT1 receptor subtypes which have been isolated from the rat, these receptors are not coupled to the inhibition of adenylyl cyclase...
