AbstractRationale. Previous studies indicate that the D3 dopamine (DA) receptor is preferentially expressed in limbic forebrain DA terminal areas and may mediate functional effects opposite those of the D1 and D2 receptor types. However, the locations of the D3 receptors that regulate behavior, and the range of behavioral functions regulated, are not clear. Objective. The objective of this study was to evaluate behavioral and cellular effects of the preferential D3 dopamine receptor antagonist… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The role of dopamine D3 compared with D2 receptors in the control of locomotor activity: a combined behavioural and neurochemical analysis with novel, selective antagonists in rats
TLDR
The facilitatory influence of a “high” dose of PD128,907 upon locomotion is mediated by postsynaptic D2 receptors and, possibly, countered by their D3 counterparts, while selective blockade of D2 but not of D3 receptors alone suppresses motor function.
Effects of dopamine D3 receptor antagonists on spontaneous and agonist-reduced motor activity in NMRI mice and Wistar rats: comparative study with nafadotride, U 99194A and SB 277011
TLDR
Comparing the effects of dopamine D3 antagonists with different levels of selectivity over D2 receptors on motor activity as well as on agonist-induced hypoactivity, in mice and rats found significant species differences and movement-type differences were observed.
THE ROLE OF DOPAMINE D 3 RECEPTORS IN THE CONTROL OF ALCOHOL INTAKE
TLDR
Modulation of DA mesolimbic pathway by selective targeting of D3 receptor might provide a basis for novel weaning treatments in alcoholism.
Dopamine D3 Receptor Is Necessary for Ethanol Consumption: An Approach with Buspirone
TLDR
DA signaling via D3R is essential for ethanol-related reward and consumption and may represent a novel therapeutic target for weaning and evaluated buspirone, an approved drug for anxiety disorders endowed with D3 R antagonist activity, that resulted effective in inhibiting ethanol intake.
Fos expression in response to dopamine D3‐preferring phenylpiperazine drugs given with and without cocaine
TLDR
The findings support the idea that D3R‐selective compounds may be useful for cocaine dependence medications development and suggest that even though these compounds have different efficacy in the AC bioassy, they produce similar brain activation and attenuation of cocaine hyperlocomotion.
Blockade of Intranigral and Systemic D3 Receptors Stimulates Motor Activity in the Rat Promoting a Reciprocal Interaction among Glutamate, Dopamine, and GABA
TLDR
The data highlight the pivotal role of presynaptic nigral D3 and D1R in the control of motor activity and help to explain part of the effects of the in vivo administration of D3R agents.

Chronic food restriction in rats augments the central rewarding effect of cocaine and the δ1 opioid agonist, DPDPE, but not the δ2 agonist, deltorphin-II
TLDR
Findings indicating that the enhanced self-administration of abused drugs by food-restricted subjects is due to enhanced sensitivity of a final common pathway for drug reward are confirmed and extended.
A paradoxical regulation of the dopamine D3 receptor expression suggests the involvement of an anterograde factor from dopamine neurons.
TLDR
It is proposed that an anterograde factor present in mesolimbic dopaminergic neurons, but distinct from dopamine and known peptide cotransmitters, plays a positive role on transcription of the D3 receptor gene.
Rewarding and locomotor-activating effects of direct dopamine receptor agonists are augmented by chronic food restriction in rats
TLDR
Results indicate that the augmentation of reward by food restriction extends to drugs that bypass the DA terminal and act postsynaptically and suggest that food restriction may increase the "enabling" effect of the D1 receptor on DA-mediated behaviors.
Selective D3 receptor agonist effects of (+)-PD 128907 on dialysate dopamine at low doses

Alterations in Dopamine Release But Not Dopamine Autoreceptor Function in Dopamine D3 Receptor Mutant Mice
TLDR
The results suggest that the effects of PD 128907 on dopamine cell function reflect stimulation of D2 as opposed to D3 receptors, which may participate in postsynaptically activated short-loop feedback modulation of DA release.
