Abstract: We have previously characterized a mechanism of 5HT-stimulated extracellular signal-regulated kinases 1 and 2 (ERK1/2) activation via the non-RNA-edited isoform of the serotonin 5HT(2C) receptor (5HT(2C)R-INI) in a CHO cell line. We have now used CV1 cells, which endogenously express epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFRs), to investigate whether the mechanisms underlying ERK1/2 activation by the 5HT(2C)R change in a time-, agonist-, and cell background-dependent manner. Interrogation of the CV1 5HT(2C)R-INI…
