dopamine receptors

dopamine receptors

Nerve cell membrane binding sites that are activated by dopamine molecules. Some are excitatory and some inhibitory, but both classes contain many subtypes. Some of these receptors mediate behavioural effects.

"When you are smoking, it tends to stimulate your dopamine receptors and this keeps you active throughout the day," says Dr Anwar.
In some cases, dopamine receptors can be exposed to competition between a partial agonist (aripiprazole) and an antagonist (the current antipsychotic).
Epigenetic modification resulted in the dopamine receptor gene being silenced: neurons carried fewer dopamine receptors, and signal transmission was reduced.
The manuscript is entitled "Cognitive Effects of MIN-101 in Patients with Schizophrenia and Negative Symptoms: Results from a Randomized Controlled Trial." Roluperidone is a novel compound with affinities for 5HT2A and sigma2 receptors and no direct binding to dopamine receptors. In this regard, roluperidone differs from drugs currently indicated for schizophrenia, all of which directly interfere with dopamine neurotransmission.
HONG KONG, May 16, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - A team led by Dr Edmond Ma Dik-lung, Associate Professor of the Department of Chemistry of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) has developed the world's first iridium(III)-based probes for imaging dopamine receptors in living cells.
For the second experiment, the scientists two sets of mosquitoes: normal ones, and ones that had dopamine receptors genetically removed from their mosquito brain.
Mosquitoes who had been genetically modified to take away their dopamine receptors lost the ability to learn the odor-shock association.
