Abstract

[3H]Lisuride binding to rat striatal membranes appeared to be stereospecifically displaced by the dopamine antagonist butaclamol. Sodium increased the number of [3H]lisuride binding sites (Bmax) without changing the dissciation constant (Kd). GTP did not affect [3H]lisuride binding characteristics, either with or without sodium. These results suggest that dopamine receptor sites labeled by lisuride are at least in part sodium-dependent, possibly the D2-receptors not involved in adenylate cyclase stimulation.
