D1, a subtype of the dopamine receptors, is widely distributed in the nervous system and has been shown to be positively coupled to adenylate cyclase. Using a combination of in vitro receptor autoradiographic and in situ hybridization techniques, the present study examines the co-distribution of D1 receptor binding sites and D1 receptor mRNA in adjacent rat brain sections. D1 receptor binding sites were labeled using the selective antagonist [3H](R)-(+)-8-chloro-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-3-methyl-5… CONTINUE READING
