Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter that regulates several key functions in the brain, such as motor output, motivation and reward, learning and memory, and endocrine regulation. Dopamine does not mediate fast synaptic transmission, but rather modulates it by triggering slow-acting effects through the activation of dopamine receptors, which belong to the G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily. Besides activating different effectors through G-protein coupling, dopamine receptors also… Expand
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. Expand
Dopamine receptors in emesis: molecular mechanisms and potential therapeutic function.
TLDR
The pre- and clinical evidence provided in this review supports the implication of both dopamine and dopamine receptor agonists in the incidence of emesis and potential novel antiemetic targeting emetic protein signaling cascades may offer superior selectivity profile and potency. Expand
Allosteric interactions between catecholamine receptors and other G protein-coupled receptors: Pharmacological and functional characterization
Catecholamines, including dopamine (DA) and norepinephrine (NE), are widely distributed in the body and constitute a class of conventional neurotransmitters and hormones that occupy key positions inExpand
Dopaminergic dysfunction in neuropsychiatric disorders. Pathophysiology, current therapeutics, and future perspectives
Dopaminergic signalling is crucial for a variety of brain functions, and abnormal dopamine regulation leads to neuropsychiatric disorders. Dopamine (DA) receptors are members of the G protein-coupledExpand
Dopamine D1–D2 receptor heterodimers: A literature review
TLDR
Investigation of dopamine receptor heteromers extends the understanding of the mechanisms of ligand-receptor interaction and opens new opportunities for the development of pharmacological agents for the treatment of psychiatric disorders associated with impaired dopaminergic neurotransmission, particularly, drug dependence.

TLDR
An overview of recent advances on the involvement of the signalling molecules Akt and glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK3) in the regulation of behaviour by the monoamine neurotransmitters dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-HT) is provided. Expand
Heteromeric Dopamine Receptor Signaling Complexes: Emerging Neurobiology and Disease Relevance
TLDR
The emerging neurobiology of the known dopamine receptor heteromers, their physiological relevance in brain, and the potential role of these receptor complexes in neuropsychiatric disease are described. Expand
Voltage sensitivity of dopamine D2-like receptors
G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) mediate a multitude of responses serving hormonal, neurotransmitter, and sensory functions. These receptors are important drug targets; in fact, about 27 % ofExpand
Evolutionarily conserved phosphorylation and palmitoylation-dependent regulation of dopamine D1-like receptors in vertebrates
TLDR
Findings suggest that dynamic regulation of dopaminergic synapses made possible by reversible phosphorylation of D1-like receptors may ensure the specific refined functions of vertebrate nervous systems. Expand
Dopamine D4 receptor oligomerization – contribution to receptor biogenesis

Dopamine receptor-interacting proteins: the Ca(2+) connection in dopamine signaling.
TLDR
The discovery that two DRIPs, calcyon and neuronal Ca(2+) sensor 1 (NCS-1), are upregulated in schizophrenia highlights the possibility that altered protein interactions and defects in Ca( 2+) homeostasis might contribute to abnormalities in the brain dopamine system in neuropsychiatric diseases. Expand
The dopamine D(4) receptor: one decade of research.
TLDR
New insights into the biochemistry of the dopamine D(4) receptor include the discovery that this G protein-coupled receptor can directly interact with SH3 domains and converging evidence from transgenic mouse work and human genetic studies suggests that this receptor has a role in exploratory behavior and as a genetic susceptibility factor for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

A D2 Class Dopamine Receptor Transactivates a Receptor Tyrosine Kinase to Inhibit NMDA Receptor Transmission
TLDR
RTK transactivation provides a novel mechanism of communication between dopaminergic and glutamatergic systems and might help to explain how reciprocal changes in these systems could be linked to the deficits in cognition, memory, and attention observed in schizophrenia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Expand
Dopamine responsiveness is regulated by targeted sorting of D2 receptors.
TLDR
A molecular mechanism that selectively targets D2 receptors for degradation after their activation by dopamine is identified and modulation of the D2-GASP interaction is suggested to be important for the functional down-regulation of D 2 receptors. Expand
Dopamine receptors: from structure to function.
TLDR
Target deletion of several of these dopamine receptor genes in mice should provide valuable information about their physiological functions and provide unequivocal evidence for the involvement of one of these receptors in the etiology of various central nervous system disorders. Expand
Structure and function of dopamine receptors
TLDR
This review focuses on the pharmacological and biochemical features shared by the dopamine receptors and their coupling to secondary messenger pathways and their physiological function based upon studies using pharmacological tools, specific brain lesions and, more recently, genetically modified animal models.

Dopamine activation of the arachidonic acid cascade as a basis for D1D2 receptor synergism
TLDR
In Chinese hamster ovary cells transfected with the D2 receptor complementary DNA, D2 agonists potently enhance arachidonic acid release, provided that such release has been initiated by stimulating constitutive purinergic receptors or by increasing intracellular Ca2+. Expand
Voltage‐dependence of the human dopamine D2 receptor
TLDR
Electrophysiology data from Xenopus oocytes indicate that the D2 receptor is indeed voltage‐sensitive, and is likely to bear relevance to the function of the D1 receptor in gating synaptic input and in regulating plasticity. Expand
Distinct functions of the two isoforms of dopamine D2 receptors
TLDR
It is shown that these receptors have distinct functions in vivo; D2L acts mainly at postsynaptic sites and D2S serves presynaptic autoreceptor functions, uncovering a circuit of signalling interference between dopamine receptors. Expand
