In situ hybridization was combined with FluoroGold retrograde labelling to determine the distribution of messenger RNAs for the D1 dopamine receptor, D2 dopamine receptor, beta-preprotachykinin or preproenkephalin in the neurons projecting from the nucleus accumbens to the ventral pallidum and the ventral tegmental area. Neurons were quantified in both the core and the shell of the nucleus accumbens to estimate the proportion of neurons projecting to the ventral pallidum or ventral tegmental… Expand
Expression of glutamate receptor subunit/subtype messenger RNAS for NMDAR1, GLuR1, GLuR2 and mGLuR5 by accumbal projection neurons.
TLDR
Accumbens neurons innervating the ventral pallidum and ventral tegmental area differ in the relative proportion of expressed mRNA encoding mGluR5, implying differential postsynaptic impact by glutamate transmission on neurons contributing to the two major efferent pathways of the nucleus accumbens. Expand
Ultrastructural immunocytochemical localization of the dopamine D2 receptor and tyrosine hydroxylase in the rat ventral pallidum
TLDR
These results provide the first ultrastructural evidence that D2Rs in the two VP subterritories are strategically located for primary involvement in modulation of the presynaptic release of nondopaminergic inhibitory transmitters and suggest that in this region the Presynaptic D2 receptors are minimally involved in autoregulation of dopaminergic transmission. Expand
Tyrosine kinase B and C receptors in the neostriatum and nucleus accumbens are co-localized in enkephalin-positive and enkephalin-negative neuronal profiles and their expression is influenced by cocaine
TLDR
It is shown that an acute injection of cocaine results in a decrease in the number of tyrosine kinase B and C receptors immunoreactive neuronal profiles in specific regions of the nucleus accumbens and neostriatum, indicating that cocaine-induced increases in extracellular dopamine in the striatal complex result in compensatory decreases in the expression of tyrosexual receptors.

Chemical organization of projection neurons in the rat accumbens nucleus and olfactory tubercle

Neurokinin 1 receptor distribution in cholinergic neurons and targets of substance P terminals in the rat nucleus accumbens
TLDR
Findings suggest that, in the NAc, NK1 receptors are recycled through endosomal compartments and play a role in modulating mainly the postsynaptic responses, but also the presynaptic release, of SP and/or inhibitory neurotransmitters onto aspiny interneurons, some of which are cholinergic. Expand
Ventral Pallidum Is the Primary Target for Accumbens D1 Projections Driving Cocaine Seeking
TLDR
Activity in D1 dopamine receptor-expressing neurons in the NAc is required for rodents to respond to cocaine-conditioned cues and relapse to drug seeking behaviors and data show that only D1-MSN innervation of the ventral pallidum is necessary for cue-induced cocaine seeking. Expand
Subcellular distribution and plasticity of neurokinin-1 receptors in the rat substantia nigra and ventral tegmental area
TLDR
These results are the first to show that neurokinin-1 receptors have plasmalemmal distributions in dopaminergic and non-dopaminergic neurons that can be differentially modified by startle-evoking auditory stimulation and suggest that while apomorphine can independently affect neurokinIn-1 receptor trafficking in substantia nigra motor circuits, its effects on neurokin1 receptor distributions in the ventral tegmental area are exclusively dependent on sensory activation. Expand
Cannabinoid-1 receptors in the mouse ventral pallidum are targeted to axonal profiles expressing functionally opposed opioid peptides and contacting N-acylphosphatidylethanolamine-hydrolyzing phospholipase D terminals
TLDR
It is concluded that CB1Rs in the mouse VP have subcellular distributions consistent with on demand activation by endocannabinoids that can regulate the release of functionally opposed opioid peptides and also modulate inhibitory and excitatory transmission. Expand
Electron microscopic dual labeling of high‐affinity neurotensin and dopamine D2 receptors in the rat nucleus accumbens shell
TLDR
The results suggest that activation of NTS1 and D2R can dually modulate transmitter release from the same or separate phenotypically distinct axon terminals in the NAc shell. Expand
Differential roles of dopamine D1 and D2 receptor‐containing neurons of the nucleus accumbens shell in behavioral sensitization
TLDR
Differential roles of D1R‐ and D2R‐containing accumbal shell neurons in the development of behavioral sensitization to psychostimulants are revealed, indicating that the observed delay in behavior sensitization in these mice involves an impairment in accumbAL dopamine release. Expand

D1 and D2 dopamine receptors differentially increase fos-like immunoreactivity in accumbal projections to the ventral pallidum and midbrain
TLDR
These findings are consistent with the proposal that D1 receptors are located chiefly on striatonigral neurons, whereas D2 receptors reside mainly on striatopallidal neurons. Expand

The present results demonstrate that the D1 and D2 receptor mRNAs are segregated, respectively, in substance P and enkephalin neurons in the caudate‐putamen and accumbens nucleus and in the olfactory tubercle (for their largest part). Expand

D1 and D2 dopamine receptors differentially regulate c-fos expression in striatonigral and striatopallidal neurons
TLDR
It was demonstrated that the D1 receptor agonist SKF 38393 rarely increased Fos in striatopallidal neurons of the 6-hydroxydopamine denervated striatum, and the inductive effects of these systematically administered compounds on Fos expression in the striatum are mediated at least partly by local dopamine receptors in thestriatum.

Phenotypical characterization of the rat striatal neurons expressing the D1 dopamine receptor gene.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that dopamine acts on efferent striatal neurons through expression of distinct receptors--namely, D1 and D2 in separate cell populations (substance P and preproenkephalin A neurons, respectively)--and can also act on nonprojecting neurons through D1 receptor expression. Expand
