AbstractThe anatomic distribution of serotonin 5-HT2A receptors visualized with [3H]MDL100,907 and of their mRNA detected by in situ hybridization were studied in monkey brain. Both autoradiographic patterns of signal showed heterogeneous distributions and were in general in good agreement in the majority of brain regions. In most neocortical areas, [3H]MDL100,907 presented a four-banded pattern with layers I and III-IV more intensely labeled and layers II and V-VI showing weaker labeling. 5-HT2A receptor mRNA was detected in layers III and IV, and in some cases also in layers II and V. In intra- and extra-calcarine areas of striate cortex a five-banded pattern was distinguished, with layers III and IVc-V showing the highest densities of [3H]MDL100,907 labeling. These two areas showed the highest neocortical hybridization signal. An unexpected finding was the presence of low densities of [3H]MDL100,907 labeling and 5-HT2A receptor mRNA in choroid plexus. Comparison of the distribution of [3H]MDL100,907 and [3H]ketanserin binding sites in monkey brain regions with high nonspecific [3H]ketanserin binding (caudate, putamen, substantia nigra, inferior olive) revealed specific binding of [3H]MDL100,907 with very low nonspecific binding. Some differences were noted between the distribution of [3H]MDL100,907-labeled 5-HT2A receptors in monkey brain and the previously reported distribution of these receptors in human brain: absence of striosome labeling in monkey striatum and different patterns of neocortical labeling. The present results provide the first detailed comparison of 5-HT2A receptor and mRNA distribution in primate brain. The observed species differences in 5-HT2A receptor distribution should be considered when extrapolating results among different species.
