Enhanced effect of dopaminergic stimulation on prepulse inhibition in mice deficient in the alpha subunit of G(z)

van den Buuse, Maarten; Martin, Sally; Brosda, J; Leck, Kwong-Joo; Matthaei, Klaus; Hendry, Ian


Rationale: Gz is a member of the Gi G protein family associated with dopamine D2-like receptors; however, its functions remain relatively unknown. The aim of the present study was to investigate prepulse inhibition (PPI) of acoustic startle, locomotor hyperactivity and dopamine D2 receptor binding in mice deficient in the α subunit of Gz. Methods: We used automated startle boxes to assess startle and PPI after treatment with saline, amphetamine, apomorphine or MK-801. We used photocell cages to...[Show more]
