|Detection of Dopamine D1 R/DRD1 in HEK293 Human Cell Line Transfected with Human Dopamine D1/DRD1 and eGFP by Flow Cytometry. HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line transfected with human Dopamine D1/DRD1 and eGFP was stained with either (A) Mouse Anti-Human Dopamine D1 R/DRD1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8276) or (B) Mouse IgG2A Isotype Control (Catalog # MAB003) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).|
|Dopamine D1 R/DRD1 in Human Brain. Dopamine D1 R/DRD1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (caudate nucleus) using Mouse Anti-Human Dopamine D1 R/DRD1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8276) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to neuronal cytoplasm.

Dopamine Receptor D1 (DRD1) is a 50 kDa member of class 1 GPCR superfamily and is the most abundant dopamine receptor in the central nervous system. This G-protein coupled receptor stimulates adenylyl cyclase and activates cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinases. D1 receptors regulate neuronal growth and development, mediate some behavioral responses, and modulate dopamine receptor D2-mediated events. DRD1 is associated with nicotine dependence, schizophrenia, and systolic blood pressure levels.
