The five subtypes of dopamine receptors (D1-D5) are members of the superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors. The D1 and D2 subtypes are the most abundant and mediate most classic dopamine-dependent behaviors. This application is focused on the D2 receptor and, in particular, on the functional significance of a 29-residue fragment in the third cytoplasmic loop that is alternatively spliced to produce the short and long forms of the D2 receptor, D2S and D2L. Considerable evidence indicates that...
