Emerging evidence shows that G protein-coupled receptors can form homo- and heteromers. These include adenosine A(2A) receptor-dopamine D(2) receptor heteromers, which are most probably localized in the dendritic spines of the striatopallidal GABAergic neurons, where they are in a position to modulate glutamatergic neurotransmission. The discovery of A(2A)(More)
Dopamine (DA) and other receptors physically interact in the plasma membrane of basal ganglia neurons forming receptor mosaics (RMs). Two types of RMs are discussed, homomers formed only by DA-receptor (DA-R) subtypes and heteromers formed by DA-R associated with other receptors, such as A2A, A1, mGluR5, N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), gamma-aminobutryic acid(More)
