Detection of Dopamine D5 R/DRD5 in HEK293 Human Cell Line Transfected with Human Dopamine D5 R/DRD5 and eGFP by Flow Cytometry. HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line transfected with (A) human Dopamine D5 R/DRD5 or (B) irrelevant transfectants and eGFP was stained with Mouse Anti-Human Dopamine D5 R/DRD5 PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB82861P). Quadrant markers were set based on control antibody staining (Catalog # IC003P). View our protocol for Staining Membrane-associated Proteins.

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).
