Preneural transmitters as regulators of embryogenesis. Current state of problem

Preneural transmitters as regulators of embryogenesis. Current state of problem Our knowledge about the preneural neurotransmitter systems and their functions were based on the old pharmacological and biochemical data that have recently been confirmed and substantially supplemented. Specific components of the preneural serotoninergic and endocannabinoid systems were identified in developing echinoderm embryos using immunocytochemistry, Western immunoelectroblotting, and HPLC-mass spectroscopy. These data were corroborated by the results of pharmacological experiments: it was found that some ligands of serotonin receptors, as well as the agonist of cannabinoid receptors anandamide induced the appearance of abnormal embryonic phenotypes, whose expression depended on the ligand-teratogen concentration. Their appearance was prevented, correspondingly, by serotonin and its lipophilic (or hydrophilic) analogs and antagonists of cannabinoid (CB1CB2)-receptors.
