Guanosine triphosphate (GTP) and diphosphate nucleotides decrease the binding of the agonist ligands [3H]apomorphine and [3H]ADTN to dopamine receptors in the rat corpus striatum with half maximal reduction of binding at 5 μM. These nucleotides also reduce agonist inhibition of the antagonist [3H]spiroperidol binding to dopamine receptors without affecting total [3H]spiroperidol binding. Guanosine monophosphate and adenine nucleotides display negligible influence on dopamine receptor binding. GTP reduces the affinity of [3H]apomorphine binding with no effect on the maximal numbers of binding sites.
