Heterologous expression of the human D2S dopamine receptor in protease-deficient Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains.


The cDNA for the human D2S dopamine receptor has been functionally expressed in the unicellular yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The original D2S gene and an elongated D2S gene with an N-terminal fusion to the first 24 amino acids of the STE2 gene from S. cerevisiae were introduced into the episomal yeast expression vector YEp51 under the control of the… (More)
