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, Benign Essential and Blepharospasm. Among its related pathways are Monoamine GPCRs and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and G-protein coupled amine receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DRD1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DRD5 Gene
Dopamine receptor whose activity is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase.
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 are selective between them.
