Summaries for DRD5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DRD5 Gene

  • This gene encodes the D5 subtype of the dopamine receptor. The D5 subtype is a G-protein coupled receptor which stimulates adenylyl cyclase. This receptor is expressed in neurons in the limbic regions of the brain. It has a 10-fold higher affinity for dopamine than the D1 subtype. Pseudogenes related to this gene reside on chromosomes 1 and 2. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DRD5 Gene

DRD5 (Dopamine Receptor D5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DRD5 include blepharospasm, primary benign and blepharospasm. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include dopamine binding and dopamine neurotransmitter receptor activity, coupled via Gs. An important paralog of this gene is TAAR9.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DRD5 Gene

  • Dopamine receptor whose activity is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase.

Tocris Summary for DRD5 Gene

  • D1 and D5 receptors (also known as D1-like receptors) are a subset of the dopamine receptor G-protein-coupled receptor family that also includes D2, D3 and D4. The two receptor subtypes are highly homologous and very few ligands have been identified that are selective between the D1 and D5 subtypes. D1 receptors are widely expressed throughout the brain, whereas D5 receptors show a restricted distribution (mainly limbic areas).

  • Benign essential blepharospasm (BEB) [MIM:606798]: A primary focal dystonia affecting the orbicularis oculi muscles. Dystonia is defined by the presence of sustained involuntary muscle contraction, often leading to abnormal postures. BEB usually begins in middle age. Initial symptoms include eye irritation and frequent blinking, progressing to involuntary spasms of eyelid closure. Patients have normal eyes. The visual disturbance is due solely to the forced closure of the eyelids. In severe cases, this can lead to functional blindness. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11781417}. Note=Disease susceptibility may be associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
