Abstract Expression of dopamine receptors (DA-Rs) in astrocytes was examined in vitro and in vivo using primary cultured astrocytes and brain slices from rat basal ganglia. Astrocytes from basal ganglia expressed DA D1-, D3-, D4- and D5-receptors and D4-mediated signal transduction in response to DA, suggesting possible involvement of astrocytes in the pharmacological action of atypical antipsychotic drugs and in DA response in some neurological diseases.
