5-HT2C is a 45 kDa 7TM receptor that belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor #1 family. It binds serotonin and is neuronally expressed in the limbic system of the brain. The release of dopamine due to 5-HT2C ligation regulates mood, appetite, and motivation. 5-HT2C is an important pharmacologic target in the treatment of psychosis, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and migrane headaches. Multiple isoforms of 5-HT2C can be generated by RNA editing. Human 5-HT2C shares 89% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat 5-HT2C.
