Development of polyclonal anti-D2 dopamine receptor antibodies to fusion proteins: Inhibition of D2 receptor-G protein interaction



Development of polyclonal anti-D2 dopamine receptor antibodies to fusion proteins: Inhibition of D2 receptor-G protein interaction



Journal of Neurochemistry 60(6): 2181-2191



Portions of the cDNA encoding the third intracellular loop (i3 loop) of the long and short isoforms of the rat D2 dopamine receptor were subcloned into the vector pNMHUBpoly and expressed in Escherichia coli as fusion proteins. The fusion proteins were gel-purified and used to immunize rabbits for the production of polyclonal anti-receptor antisera. The anti-fusion protein antisera recognized synthetic peptides corresponding to segments of the i3 loops of D2 dopamine receptors in a solid-phase radioimmunoassay. Antisera were tested in an immunoprecipitation assay using the reversible D2 antagonist (125I)NCQ 298 and digitonin-solubilized extracts of canine and rat caudate. (125I)NCQ 298 bound reversibly and with high affinity (K-D = 0.14 nM) to receptors in solubilized extracts enriched by chromatography on heparin-agarose. The anti-UBI-D2i3-L and anti-UBI-D2i3-S antisera were able to immunoprecipitate quantitatively D2 dopamine receptors labeled with (125I)NCQ 298 from solubilized rat caudate. The antibodies were tested for their ability to affect the coupling of D2 dopamine receptors to GTP-binding proteins in digitonin-solubilized rat caudate. Both anti-UBI-D2i3-L and anti-UBI-D2i3-S antisera were able to inhibit the high-affinity binding of the agonist N-propylnorapomorphine to digitonin-solubilized rat caudate. These findings indicate that the i3 loop of the D2 dopamine receptor is an important determinant for coupling of the G protein.
