How this Key Event works

Inhibitors of the serotonin reuptake transporter (SERT; 5-hydroxytryptamine transporter; 5-HTT) block the reuptake of the neurotransmitter serotonin, increasing its residence time in synapses.

How it is Measured or Detected

Toxcast assays that target the serotonin transporter (5-HTT; SERT) gene SLC6A4 include: NVS_TR_rSERT,NVS_TR_rSERT.
