Dopamine D5 R/DRD5 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain using Mouse Anti-Human Dopamine D5 R/DRD5 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8286) 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 cytoplasm in neurons. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Background: Dopamine D5 R/DRD5
DRD5, also known as Dopamine D5 Receptor has a higher affinity for neurotransmitter dopamine than DRD1 (1). DRD5 is expressed in neurons in many human brain regions, including cortex regions, hippocampus, choroid plexus, and brainstem (2). Polymorphisms in the DRD5 gene have been associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) (3), schizopherenia (4) and nicotine dependence (5). Dopamine receptors undergo endocytosis upon interaction with receptor agonists and by activation of protein kinase C (PKC) (6).
