Possible Interaction: Alcohols and Serotonin



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Alcohols with small molecular volumes increase the amplitude of currents evoked by low 5-HT concentrations and shift the 5-HT concentration-response curve for 5-HT3 receptor activation leftward, indicative of increased receptor sensitivity to agonist.

The function of the 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) type 3 (5-HT(3)) receptor, a member of the Cys-loop ligand-gated ion channel superfamily, is modulated by a variety of compounds such as alcohols , anesthetics and 5-hydroxyindole (5-HI).

In addition to TCE, a number of related alcohols (tribromoethanol, isopentanol and 5-chloropentanol but not ethanol) at millimolar concentrations also potentiated depolarisation of the vagus nerve induced by 5-HT.

Pharmacologically relevant concentrations of other n-alcohols (propanol to octanol) also inhibited 5-HT responses; however, longer-chain alcohols (decanol, undecanol and dodecanol) had little or no effect.

The inhibitory effects of the alcohols seemed to be specific for 5-HT and to increase according to their lipophilicity.
