Fast Serotonin (5-HT) ELISA Fast Serotonin (5-HT) ELISA Fast 5-HT ELISA: Standard curve

Fast Serotonin (5-HT) ELISA

Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) is a monoamine neurotransmitter derived from tryptophan metabolism. Produced by enterochromaffin cells in the gut and serotonergic neurons in the brain, serotonin is stored and transported by platelets in the blood. It is then excreted in urine directly, or in the form of 5-HIAA, its main metabolite. Altered serotonin levels in serum, urine and platelets are associated with carcinoid tumors (high concentrations) and CNS disorders such as autism, depression and suicidal schizophrenia (low concentrations).
