PMID:  2988838     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The role of serotonin (5HT) in the pathogenesis of ACTH-induced hypertension in sheep has been examined. The pressor responses to injections of 5HT (0.1-30 micrograms/kg) were similar in normotensive and hypertensive sheep. Prior treatment with the 5HT2 receptor antagonist ketanserin had no effect on the development of hypertension produced by ACTH administration.
