Sympathetic overdrive is a key player in hypertension, where the mesenteric vasculature plays a relevant role in modulating blood pressure. Although 5-HT inhibits noradrenergic mesenteric neurotransmission in normotensive rats, its effect on the mesenteric sympathetic drive in hypertensive rats has

5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) modulates the cardiac parasympathetic neurotransmission, inhibiting the bradyarrhythmia by 5-HT2 receptor activation. We aimed to determine whether the chronic selective 5-HT2 blockade (sarpogrelate) could modify the serotonergic modulation on vagal cardiac outflow in pithed rat. Bradycardic responses in
