Summaries for DRD4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DRD4 Gene

  • This gene encodes the D4 subtype of the dopamine receptor. The D4 subtype is a G-protein coupled receptor which inhibits adenylyl cyclase. It is a target for drugs which treat schizophrenia and Parkinson disease. Mutations in this gene have been associated with various behavioral phenotypes, including autonomic nervous system dysfunction, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and the personality trait of novelty seeking. This gene contains a polymorphic number (2-10 copies) of tandem 48 nt repeats; the sequence shown contains four repeats. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DRD4 Gene

DRD4 (Dopamine Receptor D4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DRD4 include Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder and Autonomic Nervous System Disease. Among its related pathways are GPCRs, Other and Monoamine GPCRs. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and SH3 domain binding. An important paralog of this gene is DRD3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DRD4 Gene

  • Dopamine receptor responsible for neuronal signaling in the mesolimbic system of the brain, an area of the brain that regulates emotion and complex behavior. Activated by dopamine, but also by epinephrine and norepinephrine, and by numerous synthetic agonists and drugs (PubMed:9003072, PubMed:16423344, PubMed:27659709, PubMed:29051383). Agonist binding triggers signaling via G proteins that inhibit adenylyl cyclase (PubMed:7512953, PubMed:7643093, PubMed:16423344, PubMed:27659709, PubMed:29051383). Modulates the circadian rhythm of contrast sensitivity by regulating the rhythmic expression of NPAS2 in the retinal ganglion cells (By similarity).

Tocris Summary for DRD4 Gene

  • D4 receptors are members of the dopamine receptor G-protein-coupled receptor family that also includes D1, D2, D3 and D5. They are located primarily in the frontal cortex, midbrain, amygdala and the cardiovascular system. A role in cognition and emotion has been proposed.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation:
Signaling in response to agonists such as dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine is modulated by Na(+); lower Na(+) levels result in higher receptor activity (in vitro).
GENATLAS Biochemistry:
dopamine receptor D4,with high affinity for antagonist clozapine,G protein coupled receptor superfamily,not imprinted in the human brain (putatively involved in the susceptibility to Gilles de la Tourette syndrome),and a wide range of neuropsychiatric disorders and normal behavioural variation

Variants for DRD4 Gene

Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DRD4 Gene

The number of repeats of 16 amino acids in the third cytoplasmic loop is highly polymorphic and varies among different alleles. Alleles corresponding in size to a 2 (D4.2), 3 (D4.3), 4 (D4.4), 5 (D4.5), 6 (D4.6), 7 (D4.7) and 9 (D4.9) repeats have been described. The sequence shown is that of allele D4.7. The polymorphic repeat sequence has little influence on DRD4-binding profiles and might not be essential for G protein interaction.
