Abstract There is evidence that dopamine transmission is involved in reinforcement processes and the present study investigated the relative involvement of D3 versus D2 dopamine receptors in the effects of dopamine ligands on the reinforcing action of ethanol. Rats were trained to self-administer ethanol (10% v/v) orally in a free-choice two-lever operant task using a saccharin-fading procedure. When preference in responding for ethanol over water had developed the rats were tested with several… Expand
Effects of D1 dopamine receptor agonists on oral ethanol self-administration in rats: comparison with their efficacy to produce grooming and hyperactivity
TLDR
Comparison of potencies to decrease ethanol self-administration with potencies of the agonists to produce locomotor activity and grooming revealed that reduction of ethanol self -administration by D1 full agonists occurs at doses similar to those which produce grooming and locom motor activity. Expand
Dopamine D3 receptor antagonist effects on the motivational effects of ethanol.
TLDR
The suggestion that dopamine D(3) receptors have specific involvement in ethanol reward, as measured by place conditioning, but are not important for ethanol-stimulated activity, ethanol taste aversion, or ethanol intake is supported. Expand
THE ROLE OF DOPAMINE D 3 RECEPTORS IN THE CONTROL OF ALCOHOL INTAKE
Mesolimbic dopamine controls drug and alcohol seeking behavior. Stimulation of dopamine D3 autoreceptor reduces extracellular levels of dopamine. We tested the hypothesis that dopamine D3 receptorExpand
Reduction of Oral Ethanol Self-Administration in Rats by Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors
TLDR
Evaluating several MAO inhibitors for their capacity to affect ethanol self-administration in rats trained to self-administer ethanol orally in a free-choice two-lever operant task showed results that were consistent with previous findings that synaptic levels of serotonin and dopamine play a critical role in the control of ethanol self -administration.

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. Expand
Lack of operant ethanol self-administration in dopamine D2 receptor knockout mice
TLDR
Reduced responding in the KO mice for several reinforcers including ethanol indicates a more general role for dopamine D2 receptors in motivated responding rather than a specific role in ethanol reinforcement. Expand
Dopamine D3 receptor agonists produce similar decreases in body temperature and locomotor activity in D3 knock-out and wild-type mice
TLDR
Results show that the presence of DA D3 receptors is not necessary for the expression of these effects induced by the three agonists or the antagonist supposedly selective for the D3 receptor subtype, and raises the question of the involvement of the D2-like family member in these behavioural effects and the issue of the in vivo selectivity of these four compounds.

SR141716, a central cannabinoid (CB1) receptor antagonist, blocks the motivational and dopamine-releasing effects of nicotine in rats
TLDR
Results suggest that activation of the endogenous cannabinoid system may participate in the motivational and dopamine-releasing effects of nicotine and ethanol, and may be effective in reduction of alcohol consumption, as previously suggested, and as an aid for smoking cessation. Expand
Dopamine D3 receptor knockout mice and the motivational effects of ethanol
TLDR
Results indicate that elimination of D3 receptor function has little influence on ethanol reward or intake, and ethanol self-administration in D3 knockout mice compared with C57BL/6J mice is characterized. Expand
Role of dopamine D3 receptors in the addictive properties of ethanol.
TLDR
A new, promising area in alcohol research that focuses on the role of the dopamine D(3) receptor in the addictive properties of ethanol is highlighted. Expand

Effects of dopaminergic D3‐receptor-preferring ligands on the acquisition of place conditioning in rats
TLDR
Results suggest that DA function in the structures involved in incentive learning could be controlled through inhibitory D3 (or 'D2-like') receptor-mediated processes. Expand
Dopamine partial receptor agonists reduce ethanol intake in the rat.
TLDR
The pharmacological profile of dopamine partial receptor agonists and their effects in animal models of dependence provide preclinical support to the hypothesis that these compounds may represent a novel pharmacological strategy for intervention in various forms of drug addiction. Expand
Effects of a range of dopamine receptor agonists and antagonists on ethanol intake in the rat.
TLDR
The results suggest the involvement of the dopaminergic system in ethanol intake and ethanol reinforcement with dopamine D1 and D2/D3 receptors playing opposing roles. Expand
Evidence for the involvement of dopamine receptors in ethanol-induced hyperactivity in mice
TLDR
The results indicate that activation of D1 and D2/D3 DA receptors is implicated in ethanol-induced hyperactivity whereas other mechanisms might mediate the sedative effects of ethanol. Expand
Evidence for a role for dopamine D3 receptors in the effects of dopamine agonists on operant behaviour in rats.
TLDR
The results of this study are consistent with the view that D3 DA receptors may play an important role in mediating the behavioural effects of DA agonists and that these receptors have a presynaptic location. Expand
Effects of D1 and D2 dopamine receptor agents on ethanol consumption in the high-alcohol-drinking (HAD) line of rats.
TLDR
The findings implicate both D1 and D2 receptors in the reinforcing effects of alcohol drinking by the HAD line of rats. Expand
Discriminative stimulus effects of apomorphine and 7-OH-DPAT: a potential role for dopamine D3 receptors
TLDR
It is suggested that, at the doses used, apomorphine and 7-OH-DPAT produce similar discriminative stimuli, which may be mediated by presynaptically located dopamine D3 receptors. Expand
Modulation of cocaine self-administration in the rat through D-3 dopamine receptors.
TLDR
Three dopamine receptor agonists had affinities for binding to the D-3 receptor that correlated highly with their relative potencies in decreasing cocaine self-administration in the rat at doses that were not by themselves reinforcing. Expand
Selective D1 and D2 dopamine agonists produce opposing effects in place conditioning but not in conditioned taste aversion learning
TLDR
The idea that D1 receptors may be exclusively involved in mediating the aversive properties of psychomotor stimulants was tested and the results did not support this notion; it was found that both quinpirole and SKF 38393 produced a conditioned taste aversion. Expand
In vivo evidence for preferential role of dopamine D3 receptor in the presynaptic regulation of dopamine release but not synthesis.
TLDR
The present results give further support to the hypothesis that the dopamine D3 autoreceptor is preferentially involved in the presynaptic regulation of dopamine release, while the D2 autore receptor controls dopamine synthesis. Expand
