Antibodies to Dopamine, Dopamine- hydroxylase (DBH), Dopamine-transporter and -receptors - FocusOn 090


Dopamine is an endogenous catecholamine that influences many cellular activities, including behavior, hormone synthesis and release, blood pressure and intra cellular ion transport. For example, degeneration of certain dopamine-producing brain cells results in parkinsonism.

A family of at least 5 Dopamine Receptors (DR) genes, D1-D5, have been identified based upon the amino acid identity, pharmacological specificity and effector responses. DR have been classified into either the D1-like (D1, D1B, and D5) or D2-like (D2, D3, and D4). The two isoforms of D2R, D2 long (D2L) and short D2S, are encoded by splice variants of a single gene and differ only by the presence of an additional 29 aa in the intracellular domain 3 of the D2 long form. It may play a role in the coupling of the receptor to G-proteins. All members of this family have similar structure and contain 7 putative transmembrane domains.

Dopamine beta-hydroxylase (DBH) catalyzes the conversion of dopamine to noradrenaline and is expressed selectively in noradrenergic and adrenergic neurons in the nervous system.

The dopamine transporter (DAT) is a phosphoprotein whose activity and phosphorylation state are acutely regulated by both protein kinase C (PKC) and substrate transport. DAT is a major site of action for psychostimulant and therapeutic drugs that either block transport or are transported substrates.
