5-HT2A is a gene that codes for a serotonin receptor called the 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 2A. This receptor is a member of the 5-HT2 family of serotonin receptors, which are G protein-coupled receptors that are activated by the neurotransmitter serotonin. The 5-HT2A receptor is widely distributed throughout the brain and is involved in a number of important physiological functions, including the regulation of mood, cognition, and perception. Dysregulation of the 5-HT2A receptor has been linked to a number of psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia.
