OBJECTIVE: Activated platelets release serotonin at sites of inflammation where it acts as inflammatory mediator and enhances recruitment of neutrophils. Chronic treatment with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) depletes the serotonin storage pool in platelets, leading to reduced leukocyte recruitment in murine experiments. Here, we examined the direct and acute effects of SSRI on leukocyte recruitment in murine peritonitis. METHODS: C57Bl/6 and Tph1-/- (Tryptophan hydroxylase1) mice underwent acute treatment with the SSRI fluoxetine or vehicle...

BACKGROUND: The wounding response relies on tightly regulated crosstalk between recruited fibroblasts and the collagenous extracellular matrix (ECM). Discoidin domain receptor 2 (DDR2) is a tyrosine kinase receptor for fibrillar collagen expressed during pathologic scarring, for example wound healing, arthritis and cancer. We have previously shown that DDR2 phosphorylation drives key wounding responses in skin fibroblasts including proliferation, chemotactic migration and secretion of both metalloproteinases and fibrillar collagen...

In the 1960s, serotonin (5HT) was associated with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) caused by certain diet pills, but has recently been the subject of renewed interest in the field of PAH. Serotonin can be synthesised in the pulmonary endothelium with the rate-limiting step being the activity of tryptophan hydroxylase1 (Tph1). The serotonin is released and can then: (i) pass into the underlying pulmonary smooth muscle cells through the serotonin transporter (SERT) to initiate proliferation and/or (ii) activate serotonin receptors on pulmonary smooth muscle cells to evoke proliferation and/or contraction...
