Results showed that serotonin and quercetin bind in the same region of the active site with a similar binding energy but quercetin has a much bigger inhibition constant.
Therefore, it seems possible that quercetin may act as a natural inhibitor of the receptor blocking the acute inflammation generated by serotonin.
