  • FunctionDopamine receptor whose activity is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase.
  • Tissue specificityDetected in caudate, nucleus accumbens and in the olfactory tubercle.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the cell surface is regulated by interaction with DNAJC14.

  • ab20066 staining Dopamine Receptor D1 in Mouse brain tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (PFA perfusion fixed frozen sections). Tissue samples were fixed by perfusion with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 5% serum for 60 minutes at 23°C. The sample was incubated with primary antibody (1/600 in PBS + 5% Serum) at 4°C for 13 hours. An undiluted Alexa Fluor®555-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.
