Dopamine Receptor D5 (DRD5 or D5R/D5 receptor) belongs to GPCR1 family and represents dopamine receptor whose activity is mediated by G proteins that activate adenylyl cyclase. Localized in cell membranes as multi-pass trans-membrane protein, DRD5 exhibits widespread expression in CNS tissues- amygdala, frontal cortex, hippocampus, striatum, basal forebrain, hypothalamus, cerebellum and thalamus - whereas, at cellular level, the large aspiny neurons of neostriatum, which are typically cholinergic interneurons, only express DRD5. Besides stimulating adenyl cyclase activity, DRD5 also interacts with GABRG2 suggesting that it may modulate GABAAR-mediated activity via second messenger cascades as well as direct receptor-receptor interaction. Mice lacking DRD5 are less active in baseline locomotor exploration while their exploratory activity increases, suggesting its inhibitory effect on locomotion. DRD5 has been suggested to be implicated in regulating hypothalamic function and some forms of motor control.
