Scientific Background
Scientific Background

Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) is a monoamine neurotransmitter synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan by the enzyme tryptophan-decarboxylase. This conversion occurs in chromaffin and enteric cells whereas Serotonin reaches the central nervous system via blood circulation. In addition to its function as a neurotransmitter in the CNS it serves as a precursor for melatonin in the pineal gland. It can also be found in non-neuronal tissues such as the mucosa of gut and blood platelets. Serotonin is known to affect numerous behavioral and physiological functions1.

Involved in Serotonin signaling are metabotropic serotonin receptors, ionotropic receptors as well as transporters important for modulating serotonin levels in serotonergic neurons.
