Chromosomal localization of the human D3 dopamine receptor gene

Hum Genet. 1991 Sep;87(5):618-20. doi: 10.1007/BF00209024.


A novel dopamine D3 receptor gene that may be involved in psychiatric diseases has recently been characterized. It has been assigned to chromosome 3 by hybridization with a D3 receptor probe to human sorted chromosomes, and localized to band 3q 13.3 by in situ hybridization.
