Use of [3H]-clozapine as a ligand of the dopamine D4 receptor subtype in peripheral tissues.

1. Molecular biology studies have documented the presence of peripheral dopamine D4 receptors. This site has not been characterized yet with classical radioligand binding assay techniques because of the lack of selective radioligands. 2. The atypical neuroleptic clozapine labelled with tritium ([3H]-clozapine) has been proposed and sold as a radioligand for… CONTINUE READING
