Data Sheet

Background: The human dopamine receptor DRD2 (D2) is a G protein-coupled receptor for dopamine. It can be found on postsynaptic dopaminergic neurons that are centrally involved in reward-mediating mesocorticolimbic pathways. Signaling through dopamine D2 receptors governs physiological functions related to locomotion, hormone production, and drug abuse.

Application: Functional assays

Dose-dependent inhibition of forskolin-stimulated intracellular cAMP level upon treatment with ligand, measured with MultiscreenTM TR-FRET cAMP 1.0 No Wash Assay Kit (Multispan MSCM01). Figure 3. Receptor expression on cell surface measured by flow cytometry (FACS) using an anti-FLAG antibody. Thin line: parental cells; thick line: receptor-expressing cells.
