Official Full Name
5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptor 3B, ionotropic
The product of this gene belongs to the ligand-gated ion channel receptor superfamily. This gene encodes subunit B of;the type 3 receptor for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin), a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a;hormone, and a mitogen. This receptor causes fast, depolarizing responses in neurons after activation. It is not;functional as a homomeric complex, but a pentaheteromeric complex with subunit A (HTR3A) displays the full functional;features of this receptor.
