INTRODUCTION: Emerging evidence suggests the 5-HT7 receptor as a therapeutic target in stress-related disorders. Precise effects of the 5‑HT7‑mediated regulation of neuronal excitability remain to be elucidated. Preliminary recordings from rat CA1 piramidal neurons showed that 5-HT7 activation shortens the latency of the first spike in response to depolarization. Due to their rapid kinetics and fast recovery from inactivation, A-type potassium channels (KA) are prime candidates for mediating this effect. AIM(S): The aim of our study was to assess whether the changes in neuronal excitability and response dynamics of CA1 pyramidal cells following the activation of 5-HT7 receptors are due to inhibition of A-type K+ channels. METHOD(S): Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were performed in current-clamp mode. Neurons were held at −65 mV and their excitability was assessed using depolarizing current pulses. To activate 5-HT7 receptors, 5‑CT (250 nM) was applied along with WAY 100635 (2 µM), a 5-HT1A antagonist. Further recordings were performed in the presence of specific blockers of A‑type and H‑type channels. RESULTS: Activation of 5-HT7 receptors increased the excitability of CA1 pyramidal cells as well as decreased the latency to 1st spike, and effect which was prevented by using a specific Kv4.3/Kv4.4 channel blocker. Blockade of HCN channels did not affect the decrease in spike latency. CONCLUSIONS: Our data show that activation of 5-HT7 influences neuronal excitability in CA1 pyramidal cells partly by inhibiting fast-inactivating A-type potassium channels. These results help further explain the physiological role of the 5-HT7 receptor, hopefully leading to better understanding of its role in nervous system physiology and pathology.
