Competition binding at several receptors. Competition binding of Salvia officinalis extract at the human adrenergic alpha 2A receptor expressed in Chem-1 cells (a), the muscarinic M3 receptor expressed in CHO cells (b), the human μ-opioid receptor expressed in CHO-K1 cells (c), the human serotonin transporter expressed in HEK293 cells (d, Salvia off. tincture), the human serotonin 5-HT1A receptor expressed in HEK293-EBNA cells (e), and the human serotonin 5-HT2B receptor expressed in CHO-K1 cells (f). Summary curves over 2–3 independent experiments performed in duplicate (mean specific binding ± S.E.M.). The calculated IC50 values are indicated above the figure. The horizontal dashed line marks 50% specific binding
