Gene: Drd2 (dopamine receptor D2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Drd2
Name: dopamine receptor D2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including dopamine binding activity; dopamine neurotransmitter receptor activity, coupled via Gi/Go; and ionotropic glutamate receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including nervous system development; regulation of ion transport; and regulation of protein modification process. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytoplasmic vesicle; integral component of synaptic membrane; and lateral plasma membrane. Used to study cocaine dependence and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. Biomarker of several diseases, including Gilles de la Tourette syndrome; drug psychosis; hyperprolactinemia; opiate dependence (multiple); and toxic encephalopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including brain disease (multiple); end stage renal failure; mental depression; obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human DRD2 (dopamine receptor D2); PARTICIPATES IN dopamine signaling pathway; excitatory synaptic transmission pathway; dopamine signaling pathway via D2 family of receptors; INTERACTS WITH (+)-butaclamol; (+)-pilocarpine; (R)-noradrenaline.
Type: protein-coding
