BackgroundSeason of birth (SOB) has been associated with many physiological and psychological traits including novelty seeking and sensation seeking. Similar traits have been associated with genetic polymorphisms in the dopamine system. SOB and dopamine receptor genetic polymorphisms may independently and interactively influence similar behaviors through their common effects on the dopaminergic system.Methodology/Principal FindingsBased on a sample of 195 subjects, we examined whether SOB was associated with impulsivity, sensation seeking and reproductive behaviors. Additionally we examined potential interactions of dopamine receptor genes with SOB for the same set of traits. Phenotypes were evaluated using the Sociosexual Orientation Inventory, the Barratt Impulsivity Scale, the Eysenck Impulsivity Questionnaire, the Sensation Seeking Scale, and the Delay Discounting Task. Subjects were also asked about their age at first sex as well as their desired age at the birth of their first child. The dopamine
SKF83959, previously described as an antagonist of the D1 dopamine receptor, has been shown to be a potent anti-parkinsonian agent. However, its mechanism of action is unknown. The present communication was designed to study the mechanism by which SKF83959 exerts its pharmacological effects. SKF83959 induced contralateral rotations in the unilateral 6-OHDA-lesioned rat model of Parkinsons disease (PD). The rotations were completely blocked by the D1 dopamine receptor antagonist, SCH23390. The response was not affected by the serotonin receptor antagonist, mesulergine and was transiently attenuated by alpha1 adrenergic or D2 dopamine receptor antagonists, prazosin or spiperone, respectively. Injection of 0.5 and 1 mg/kg SKF83959 elicited significant elevations in IP3 accumulation in lesioned as compared to intact striata. This effect was blocked by SCH23390 at a dose that completely obviated the rotational response to SKF83959, suggesting that activation of the PI-linked D1 dopamine receptor and the PLC

Novel Treatments for Head and Neck Cancer using FDA-approved Drugs (Nira Ben-Jonathan, PhD, UC). Patients with head and neck cancer (HNC) are commonly treated with surgery, radiation, and/or conventional chemotherapeutic drugs such as cisplatin and taxol. However, all these treatments are associated with debilitating side effects, and a significant decrease in the quality of life. Moreover, treatment failure due to loss of drug responsiveness are common. Consequently, there is an urgent need for alternative, more targeted therapies for this disease. Our laboratory discovered that dopamine, a small molecule best known for its role in brain functions, is also involved in HNC. Activation of specific dopamine receptors, named D1R, located on the surface of cancer cells, suppressed cell growth and increased the ability of conventional anti-cancer drugs to kill the cells. The first objective is to determine the relative occurrence of D1R in several hundred pathological tumor samples, and correlate D1R ...

Dopamine agonists, such as bromocriptine, pramipexole and others are used to treat parkinsons disease which work by acting on dopamine receptors and compensate for the lack of dopamine which the brain cells no longer produce. They are used together with levodopa. By increasing dopamine levels they restore the balance of Acetylcholine and dopamine thus increasing wakefulness. ...
Dopamine D1 and D2 Receptors in Chronic Mild Stress: Analysis of Dynamic Receptor Changes in an Animal Model of Depression Using In Situ Hybridization and Autoradiography Depression is a multifaceted illness that involves altered monoamine neurotransmission. Many monoamine receptor subtypes (e.g., dopamine D1 and D2) demonstrate altered expression levels in depressed patients and animal models of depression. Currently, there are an increasing number of molecular and biochemical studies on the mechanism of stress resilience. In this chapter, we describe a chronic mild stress (CMS) procedure along with in situ hybridization and autoradiography protocols to study changes in brain dopamine receptor expression of rats subjected to CMS. Chronic mild stress procedure (CMS) is one of few behavioral animal models of depression, and this model has good construct, face, and predictive validity. Moreover, approximately 30 % of rats exposed to stress regimen are stress resilient. There are numerous ...
Methods and compositions are provided for diagnosing and treating pathological conditions related to a dopamine receptor abnormality. The methods comprise administering to a patient having such a pathological condition a plasmid encoding an oligonucleotide, antisense to one or more RNA molecules encoding one of the several dopamine receptors, thereby selectively controlling expression of one or more dopamine receptor subtypes, and alleviating the pathological conditions related to their expression. The vectors are targeted to specific regions of the brain via complexation with antibody studded liposomes.

Title: Partial Dopamine Receptor Agonists as Newer Atypical Antipsychotics:Intrinsic Activity Appropriate for Treatment of Schizophrenic Patients. VOLUME: 7 ISSUE: 3. Author(s):Yuji Odagaki. Affiliation:Department of Psychiatry,Faculty of Medicine, Saitama Medical University, 38 Morohongo,Moroyama-achi, Iruma-gun, Saitama 350-0495, Japan.. Keywords:Atypical antipsychotics, aripiprazole, dopamine receptor, partial agonist, intrinsic activity, presynaptic autoreceptor, schizophrenia, dopamine system stabilizer. Abstract: Conventional antipsychotic drugs, which have been used for a half century to treat a range of major psychiatric disorders like schizophrenia, are being replaced by modern "atypical antipsychotics". Although the term "atypical" has been applied broadly to antipsychotic drugs marketed in the past decade, these newer drugs are strikingly heterogeneous in chemical, pharmacological, and clinical points of view. Recently, much attention has been directed to partial dopamine receptor ...
Research reported by scientists from the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF) has shown that, in a rat model, Ritalin (methylphenidate) boosts both the ability to focus on tasks and the speed of learning by increasing the activity of the neurotransmitter dopamine through mechanisms involving two distinct dopamine receptors in the amygdala region of the brain. "We found that a dopamine receptor, known as the D2 receptor, controls the ability to stay focused on a task--the well-known benefit of Ritalin," said Dr. Patricia Janak, co-senior author of the paper. "But we also discovered that another dopamine receptor, D1, underlies learning efficiency." "Since we now know that Ritalin improves behavior through two specific types of neurotransmitter receptors, the finding could help in the development of better targeted drugs, with fewer side effects, to increase focus and learning," said Dr. Antonello Bonci, the other co-senior author of the article. The research assessed the ability of rats ...
Fenoldopam causes arterial/arteriolar vasodilation leading to a decrease in blood pressure by activating peripheral D1 receptors.[5] It decreases afterload and also promotes sodium excretion via specific dopamine receptors along the nephron. The renal effect of fenoldopam and dopamine may involve physiological antagonism of the renin-angiotensin system in the kidney.[6] In contrast to dopamine, fenoldopam is a selective D1 receptor agonist with no effect on beta adrenoceptors, although there is evidence that it may have some alpha-1 [7] and alpha-2 adrenoceptor antagonist activity.[5] D1 receptor stimulation activates adenylyl cyclase and raises intracellular cyclic AMP, resulting in vasodilation of most arterial beds, including renal, mesenteric, and coronary arteries.[8] to cause a reduction in systemic vascular resistance. Fenoldopam has a rapid onset of action (4 minutes) and short duration of action (, 10 minutes) and a linear dose-response relationship at usual clinical doses.[9] ...
Human dopamine D3 receptor is a protein that is encoded by the dopamine receptor gene (DRD3).[2] The DRD3 gene codes for the D3 dopamine receptor that inhibits adenylyl cyclase through inhibitory G-proteins. G-protein coupled receptors are a family of transmembrane proteins that transmit chemical signals from outside the cell to cause changes inside of the cell. Adenylate cyclase is part of the G-protein receptors signaling and catalyze the conversion of ATP to cyclic AMP (cAMP).[3] The D3 receptor is located in the brain, suggesting that it plays a role in cognitive and emotional functions.[4] The human dopamine D3 receptor is membrane-bound and scattered in the cytoplasm. Receptor stimulation causes internalization of the receptors at the perinuclear areas. This is followed by the spreading of the receptors to the membrane. DRD3 is also contained in lipid rafts of renal proximal tubule cells.[5] ...

Earlier we have reported that the inhibitory effects of dopamine on NKA and NHE activities in proximal tubules of hyperinsulinemic obese rats were significantly reduced compared with lean rats. We also observed that the reduced inhibition of these transporters was associated with a significant reduction in D1 receptor number in proximal tubular membranes of obese rats. In the present study, we found that if plasma levels of insulin were lowered in obese rats, the ability of dopamine to inhibit the sodium transporters in proximal tubules was restored and membrane D1 receptor numbers were normalized to the level as in lean rats.. Dopamine, endogenously produced or exogenously infused, activates tubular D1 dopamine receptors, leading to the inhibition of sodium transporters, involving multiple second-messenger pathways and subsequently causes an increase in sodium excretion.1 There have been reports suggesting a negative correlation between renal dopaminergic function and plasma insulin ...

AU - Wiens, Brenda L.. AU - Nelson, Cole S.. AU - Neve, Kim A.. PY - 1998/8. Y1 - 1998/8. N2 - Dopamine D2 receptors contain a cluster of serine residues in the fifth transmembrane domain that contribute to activation of the receptor as well as to the binding of agonists. We used rat D(2S) dopamine receptor mutants, each containing a serine-toalanine substitution (S193A, S194A, S197A), to investigate the mechanism through which these residues affect activation of the receptor. Activation of the mutant receptor S194A was abolished in an agonist-dependent manner, such that dopamine no longer inhibited cAMP accumulation in C6 glioma cells or activated G protein-regulated K+ channels in Xenopus laevis oocytes, whereas the efficacy of several other agonists was unaffected. Dihydrexidine did not inhibit cAMP ...

AU - Lachman, Herbert M.. AU - Grace, Anthony A.. PY - 2004/11/1. Y1 - 2004/11/1. N2 - Diverse phenotypic associations with the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) Val158Met polymorphism have been reported. We suggest that some of the complex effects of this polymorphism be understood from the perspective of the tonic-phasic dopamine (DA) hypothesis. We hypothesize that the COMT Met allele (associated with low enzyme activity) results in increased levels of tonic DA and reciprocal reductions in phasic DA in subcortical regions and increased D1 transmission cortically. This pattern of effects is hypothesized to yield increased stability but decreased flexibility of neural network activation states that underlie important aspects of working memory and executive functions; these effects may be beneficial or ...
Schizophrenia is a chronic, complex and heterogeneous mental disorder, with pathological features of disrupted neuronal excitability and plasticity within limbic structures of the brain. These pathological features manifest behaviorally as positive symptoms (including hallucinations, delusions and thought disorder), negative symptoms (such as social withdrawal, apathy and emotional blunting) and other psychopathological symptoms (such as psychomotor retardation, lack of insight, poor attention and impulse control). Altered glutamate neurotransmission has for decades been linked to schizophrenia, but all commonly prescribed antipsychotics act on dopamine receptors. LY404039 is a selective agonist for metabotropic glutamate 2/3 (mGlu2/3) receptors and has shown antipsychotic potential in animal studies. With data from rodents, we provide new evidence that mGlu2/3 receptor agonists work by a distinct mechanism different from that of olanzapine. To clinically test this mechanism, an oral prodrug of ...

Neural stem cells (NSCs) were obtained from newborn rats. We cloned the cDNA of human dopamine receptor 2 (hDRD2) by RT-PCR, and inserted it into the MCS of pcDNA3.1 positive plasmid. The NSCs were transfected with this recombinant plasmid mediated by the effective transfection reagent. RT-PCR, Western blot and immunocytochemistry were performed to detect the expression of hDRD2 in stem cells. NSCs were then labeled with BrdU the day before transplantation. Eight rats were divided into transplantation and control groups. All of them were subjected to focal traumatic brain injury in right parietal lobe. NSCs were transplanted into the right parietal lobe for the transplantation group, and saline were injected for the control group. Prior and post transplantation, microPET scans were performed to detect the expression of DRD2 molecule with 11C-NMSP and the regional glucose metabolism using18F-FDG. Two weeks after transplantation, the survival and gene expression of donor NSCs were analyzed by ...

The dopamine receptor D4 is a G protein-coupled receptor encoded by the DRD4 gene on chromosome 11 at 11p15.5. The structure of DRD4 was recently reported in complex with the antipsychotic drug nemonapride. As with other dopamine receptor subtypes, the D4 receptor is activated by the neurotransmitter dopamine. It is linked to many neurological and psychiatric conditions including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, ADHD, addictive behaviors, Parkinsons disease, and eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa. It is also a target for drugs which treat schizophrenia and Parkinson disease. The D4 receptor is considered to be D2-like in which the activated receptor inhibits the enzyme adenylate cyclase, thereby reducing the intracellular concentration of the second messenger cyclic AMP. The human protein is coded by the DRD4 on chromosome 11 located in 11p15.5.[citation needed] There are slight variations (mutations/polymorphisms) in the human gene: A 48-base pair VNTR in exon 3 C-521T in the ...
