1. Splice Variants The D2L and D2S splice variants of the D2 receptor, generated by alternative splicing of an 87-nucleotide exon that encodes 29 residues in the third cytoplasmic loop of D2L, were the first GPCR splice variants to be identified (28–31). Most tissues express both variants, with D2L being most abundant. Because of the location of the alternatively spliced insert in the third cytoplasmic loop, where a direct effect on the binding of ligands would not be expected, many comparisons of D2L and D2S have focused on identifying the G protein subtypes that are activated by each splice variant.
