Summary of HTR4

The gene codes for a protein, 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 4. It stimulates cAMP production in response to serotonin [R].


The Function of HTR4

This is one of the several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin), a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a hormone, and a mitogen. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins that stimulate adenylate cyclase.
