【Significance】
Pyrrole ring deformation of 5-HT

The physiologic actions of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin) are multifaceted, and include control of feelings of well-being. To exert these various actions, the body has many 5-HT receptor subtypes and specific 5-HT transporters. Our ab-initio calculations revealed that 5-HT in aqueous solution is ionized and its indole group is deformed. These findings will be useful for designing 5-HT receptor and transporter agonists, antagonists, activators, and inhibitors.
