Review excerpt: "5-hydroxytryptamine...is an ancient biochemical manipulated through evolution to be utilized extensively throughout the animal and plant kingdoms. Mammals employ 5-HT as a neurotransmitter within the central and peripheral nervous systems, and also as a local hormone in numerous other tissues, including the gastrointestinal tract, the cardiovascular system and immune cells."
