Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits dopamine neurotransmitter receptor activity, coupled via Gs. Involved in several processes, including central nervous system development; learning or memory; and modulation of chemical synaptic transmission. Localizes to several cellular components, including the GABA-ergic synapse; endoplasmic reticulum; and integral component of synaptic membrane. Used to study Huntington's disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertension and kidney failure. Orthologous to human DRD1 (dopamine receptor D1).
