Molecular biology studies have shown that human peripheral blood lymphocytes express a dopamine D5 receptor, whereas no information is available on dopamine D receptor, the other dopamine D1-like receptor subtype. Radioligand binding assay investigations with the nonsubtype selective dopamine D1-like receptor antagonist [3H]SCH 23390 as radioligand have suggested the presence of a dopamine D5 receptor in human peripheral blood lymphocytes.

In this study, we have investigated dopamine D1 and D5 receptor mRNA and the influence of antibodies against dopamine D1 and D5 receptors on [3H]SCH 23390 binding to intact human peripheral blood lymphocytes. The two receptors were also analyzed by immunocytochemistry. Dopamine D5 receptor, but not D1 mRNA, was detected in human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Anti-dopamine D5 receptor antibodies, but not anti-dopamine D1 receptor antibodies, significantly decreased [3H]SCH 23390 binding to human peripheral blood lymphocytes. A dark-brown immunoreactivity was visualized in cytospin centrifuged human peripheral blood lymphocytes exposed to anti-dopamine D5, but not to anti-dopamine D1 receptor antibodies.

Abstract

Molecular biology studies have shown that human peripheral blood lymphocytes express a dopamine D5 receptor, whereas no information is available on dopamine D receptor, the other dopamine D1-like receptor subtype. Radioligand binding assay investigations with the nonsubtype selective dopamine D1-like receptor antagonist [3H]SCH 23390 as radioligand have suggested the presence of a dopamine D5 receptor in human peripheral blood lymphocytes. However, so far no evidence was provided as whether or not human peripheral blood lymphocytes express a dopamine D1 receptor. In this study, we have investigated dopamine D1 and D5 receptor mRNA and the influence of antibodies against dopamine D1 and D5 receptors on [3H]SCH 23390 binding to intact human peripheral blood lymphocytes. The two receptors were also analyzed by immunocytochemistry. Dopamine D5 receptor, but not D1 mRNA, was detected in human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Anti-dopamine D5 receptor antibodies, but not anti-dopamine D1 receptor antibodies, significantly decreased [3H]SCH 23390 binding to human peripheral blood lymphocytes. A dark-brown immunoreactivity was visualized in cytospin centrifuged human peripheral blood lymphocytes exposed to anti-dopamine D5, but not to anti-dopamine D1 receptor antibodies. These data collectively indicate that dopamine D5 receptor is the only dopamine D1-like receptor subtype expressed by human peripheral blood lymphocytes.
