Dark-induced supersensitivity of dopamine D-1 and D-2 receptors in rat retina.

Light deprivation of rat retina leads to a rapid (within 6 h) development of a state of supersensitivity (upregulation) of dopamine D-1 receptors (positively coupled to adenylate cyclase), which are essentially involved in the modulation by light of the electrical activity and communication between horizontal cells. In contrast, the supersensitivity of D-2… CONTINUE READING
