Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits G protein-coupled serotonin receptor activity and serotonin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; cellular response to temperature stimulus; and negative regulation of cell communication. Localizes to several cellular components, including G protein-coupled serotonin receptor complex; integral component of presynaptic membrane; and serotonergic synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; eye; gonad; and immune system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and conduct disorder. Orthologous to human HTR1B (5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 1B).
