Background: The human dopamine receptor DRD3 (D3) is a G protein-coupled receptor for dopamine. D3 receptor belongs to the D2-like family of dopamine receptors which are widely expressed in the central nervous system. D3 is involved in movement coordination, cognition, emotion, affects memory and the regulation of prolactin secretion by the pituitary. Alterations in D3 pathways can cause pathogenesis of neurological, neuropsychiatric and hormonal disorders, including Parkinson’s Disease, schizophrenia and hyperprolactinemia.
