Cloning, Expression, and Pharmacology of Four Human 5-Hydroxytryptamine 4 Receptor Isoforms Produced by Alternative Splicing in the Carboxyl Terminus

Abstract : We report here the molecular cloning of three tissues, including rodent and human brain (Eglen et new splice variants of the human serotonin 5-hydroxy-al., 1995), rodent, pig, dog, and human gastrointestinal tryptamine4 (h5-HT4) receptor, which we named h5-tract, and human and pig heart (Hegde and Eglen, HT4(b), h5-HT4(~), and h5-HT4(d). The sequence following 1996). In the mammalian brain, 5-HT4 receptors conthe splicing site at Leu355 in the C-terminal tail of h5HT4(b) tribute to the control of dopamine secretion (Bondisplays a 74% protein identity with the same region in homme et al., 1995) and regulate learning and longthe long form of the rat 5-HT4 receptor (r5-HT4L) but is shorter by 18 amino acids compared to its rat counter-term memory through modulation of acetylcholine repart. The splice variants h5-HT4(~)and h5-HT4(d) are the lease (Marchetti-Gauthier et al., 1997). In peripheral first of their kind to be described, in any animal species, tissues, 5-HT4 receptors have been shown to regulate The C terminus of h5-HT4(C) displays a high number of gastrointestinal tract motility, intestinal electrolyte seputative phosphorylation sites. The h5-HT4(d) isoform cor-cretion, adrenal corticosteroid secretion, bladder conresponds to an ultrashort form of the receptor, with a traction, and atrial contractility (for review, see Hegde truncation two amino acids after the splicing site. Tissue and Eglen, 1996). distribution studies revealed some degree of specificity 5-HT4 receptors are thought to be involved in vanin the pattern of expression of the different isoforms ous central and peripheral disorders, including cardiac within the human body.
