Effect of the destruction of cells containing the serotonin reuptake transporter on urethrogenital reflexes.

Gravitt K, Marson L (2007) Effect of the destruction of cells containing the serotonin reuptake transporter on urethrogenital reflexes. J Sex Med 4:322-331. doi: 10.1111/j.1743-6109.2007.00436.x

Summary: Using the fact that the urethrogenital (UG) reflex is an autonomic and somatic response, the authors developed a model for ejaculatory-like reflexes. Anti-SERT-SAP (Cat. #IT-23) was bilaterally injected into the ventrolateral medulla of rats. 80 nl of a 1 µM solution removed inhibition of the UG reflex after acute spinal cord transection, while this reflex could not be evoked in control animals. The data suggest that SERT-expressing neurons in the ventral medulla are involved with the inhibition of UG reflex.
