According to this model, low expression or impaired function of DRD1 and DRD5 increases the level of PA (through reduced inhibitory signalling), while high expression and intact function of DRD2, DRD3 and DRD4 have inhibitory effects on PA (through increased stimulatory transmission).
One large study reviewed a great deal of the data collected on the DRD3 and serotonin receptor gene confirm an association of these genes with schizophrenia (Lohmueller, Pearce, Pike, Lander, & Hirschhorn, 2003).
2009a; Mico, Caselles, Amigo, Cotoli, & Sanz, 2013) and, by the experimental evaluation of the DRD3 gene expression, as a consequence of a suggestion technique (Amigo, Caselles, & Mico, 2013).
165] Their team also genotyped 384 SNPs within 45 candidate genes related to nicotine dependence in a Han Chinese sample by employing the Golden Gate genotyping assay, and confirmed the previous findings that DRD2, DRD3, DDC, CHRNB3, GABBR2 and CHRNA4 genetic variants were associated with nicotine dependence.
Also, it will be interesting for future research to consider other regulatory related genes (such as DRD2 and DRD3 for instance) to check the combined effects between activator and inhibitor genes on physiological activation and on psychological activation.
The D2-like family receptors include the DRD2, DRD3, and DRD4 genes.
