Chemical Serotonin

Name Serotonin
CAS Type 1 Name 1H-Indol-5-ol, 3-(2-aminoethyl)-
Equivalent Terms 3-(2-Aminoethyl)-1H-indol-5-ol | 5-HT | 5 Hydroxytryptamine | 5-Hydroxytryptamine | Enteramine | Hippophaine | Hydroxytryptamine
CAS Registry Number 50-67-9
Definition 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.
