A cDNA for the rat dopamine D3 receptor containing a 113 bp deletion has been isolated. The segment deleted, encompassing the first extracellular loop and third transmembrane domain, alters the reading frame, introducing 19 amino acids not found in the full length receptor followed by a premature stop codon. This novel mRNA encodes a 109 amino acid protein containing two putative transmembrane domains. A similar variant cDNA for the human D3 receptor has also been identified.
