Activator of G protein signaling 3 (AGS3) binds Gαi subunits in the GDP-bound state, implicating AGS3 as an important regulator of Gαi-linked receptor (e.g., D2 dopamine and μ-opioid) signaling. We examined the ability of AGS3 to modulate recombinant adenylyl cyclase (AC) type 1 and 2 signaling in HEK293 cells following both acute and persistent activation(More)
Heterologous sensitization of adenylyl cyclase (also referred to as superactivation, sensitization, or supersensitization of adenylyl cyclase) is a cellular adaptive response first described 40 years ago in the laboratory of Dr. Marshall Nirenberg. This apparently paradoxical cellular response occurs following persistent activation of Gαi/o-coupled(More)
This work describes the identification of a novel class of octahydrobenzo[f]quinolines as dopamine D(3)-selective full agonists. We developed a facile method that utilizes Suzuki coupling for easy incorporations of various substituted pendant rings into the scaffold. A small focused library of octahydrobenzo[f]quinolines 5 was synthesized, and these(More)
