The diverse physiological actions of dopamine are mediated by at least five distinct G protein-coupled receptor subtypes. Two D1-like receptor subtypes (D1 and D5) couple to the G protein Gs and activate adenylyl cyclase. The other receptor subtypes belong to the D2-like subfamily (D2, D3, and D4) and are prototypic of G protein-coupled receptors that inhibit adenylyl cyclase and activate K+ channels. The genes for the D1 and D5 receptors are intronless, but pseudogenes of the D5 exist. The D2… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Dopamine receptors and hypertension
TLDR
The molecular basis for dopamine receptor dysfunction in hypertension is being investigated, and may involve an abnormal posttranslational modification of the dopamine receptor.
Dopamine Receptor Alternative Splicing
TLDR
Dopamine systems are believed to exert functional effects through these second-messenger signaling pathways via modulation of the activity of more rapidly acting ionotropic glutamatergic, GABAergic, and nicotinic cholinergic neuronal systems.
Dopamine receptor expression and function in the normal and pathological hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis
TLDR
Dopamine receptors belong to the family of seven transmembrane domain G protein-coupled receptors and include five different receptor subtypes, named D1-Ds, which suggests the existence of two different groups of receptors: D1 and D5 receptors, associated to a stimulatory function, and Dz-like, including Dz, D3 and D4 receptors,associated to an inhibitory function.
The D2s dopamine receptor stimulates phospholipase D activity: a novel signaling pathway for dopamine.

TLDR
A novel signaling pathway for the D2s is described, which is the activation of phospholipase D (PLD), which was found to correlate with the presence of a specific protein kinase C isoform, PKCepsilon, indicating that the stimulation of PLD may involve Rho family members.
Allosteric interactions between catecholamine receptors and other G protein-coupled receptors: Pharmacological and functional characterization
TLDR
It is shown that DA and synthetic DA receptor ligands are able to bind to α2Rs and activate the same signaling pathways as NE, and further evidences are given that homodimers are the GPCR predominant species, and that allosteric interactions between orthosteric ligands of the different protomers of a G PCR heteromer, have important implications in the field of catecholamine receptor pharmacology.
Voltage sensitivity of dopamine D2-like receptors
TLDR
The findings presented in this thesis suggest that the dopamine D2-like receptors are differentially affected by voltage, demonstrating the relevance of GPCR voltage sensitivity to dopaminergic signalling, and reveals new details about the mechanism of voltage sensitive agonism.
Evidence for Noncanonical Neurotransmitter Activation: Norepinephrine as a Dopamine D2-Like Receptor Agonist
TLDR
A careful comparison between dopamine and norepinephrine in their possible activation of all D2-like receptors, including the two D2R isoforms and the most common D4R polymorphic variants is attempted.
The Physiology, Signaling, and Pharmacology of Dopamine Receptors
TLDR
D dopamine receptor classification, their basic structural and genetic organization, their distribution and functions in the brain and the periphery, and their regulation and signal transduction mechanisms are discussed.

The renal dopamine receptors.
TLDR
Dopamine is an endogenous catecholamine that modulates many functions including behavior, movement, nerve conduction, hormone synthesis and release, blood pressure, and ion fluxes and has been postulated to act as an intrarenal natriuretic hormone.
Multiple D2 dopamine receptors produced by alternative RNA splicing
TLDR
The identification and cloning of a cDNA encoding an RNA splice variant of the rat D2 receptor cDNA is reported, which codes for a receptor isoform which is predominantly expressed in the brain, and contains an additional 29 amino acids in the third cytoplasmic loop, a region believed to be involved in G protein coupling.
Cloning of the gene for a human dopamine D5 receptor with higher affinity for dopamine than D1
TLDR
The cloning of a gene encoding a 477-amino-acid protein with strong homology to the cloned Dt receptor is reported here the existence of a dopamine D1-like receptor with these characteristics had not been predicted and may represent an alternative pathway for dopamine-mediated events and regulation of D2 receptor activity.
Preferential coupling between dopamine D2 receptors and G-proteins.
TLDR
It is concluded that the 29-amino acid insertion present in D2L allows it to interact specifically with G alpha i2, suggesting that in vivo the function of activated D2 receptors is exerted by specific interactions with Gi-protein subtypes.
Cloning and expression of a rat D2 dopamine receptor cDNA
TLDR
This receptor has been characterized on the basis of three criteria: the deduced amino-acid sequence which reveals that it is a member of the family of G-protein-coupled receptors; the tissue distribution of the mRNA which parallels that of the D2 dopamine receptor; and the pharmacological profile of mouse fibroblast cells transfected with the cDNA.
Molecular cloning and expression of the gene for a human D1 dopamine receptor
TLDR
Transient or stable expression of the cloned gene in host cells established specific ligand binding and functional activity characteristic of a D1 dopamine receptor coupled to stimulation of adenylyl cyclase.
The dopamine receptor in adult and maturing kidney.
TLDR
In some animals, the renal vasodilatory and natriuretic effects of dopamine increase with age, and it remains to be determined whether these age-related differences in dopamine effects are due to changes in receptor DA subtype density, second messengers, and/or interaction with other receptors.
Expression of the D2 subfamily of dopamine receptor genes in kidney.
TLDR
It is concluded that the D2long and D3 receptor genes are expressed in specific regions of the kidney including the glomeruli and the possibility that mutations in other segments of the receptor exist in the SHR is ruled out.
Alternative splicing directs the expression of two D2 dopamine receptor isoforms
TLDR
It is shown that the gene for the D2 receptor produces two receptor isoforms by alternative messenger RNA splicing, providing a route to receptor diversity in this family of receptors.
Functional coupling of human D2, D3, and D4 dopamine receptors in HEK293 cells.
TLDR
In these cells, activation of D2, D3 or D4 receptors resulted in the inhibition of forskolin-stimulated adenylate cyclase activity in a dose responsive manner, and ribonuclease protection studies demonstrated the presence of D4 dopamine receptor mRNA in human brain regions.
