Beyond the Dopamine Receptor: Regulation and Roles of Serine/Threonine Protein Phosphatases: Left Panels: DARPP-32 (left, saggital section, positive immunoreactivity black), RCS (middle, coronal section, positive immunoreactivity white; caudate/putamen (CP) and nucleus accumbens (A); inset at right shows RCS enrichment in nucleus accumbens (left of dashed line) in more rostral section, ARPP-16 (right, saggital section, immunoreactivity white). Simple domain diagrams of each protein with their amino acid number and site of PKA phosphorylation are shown below the respective immunolocalization panels. Right Panel: Interactive roles of DARPP-32, RCS and ARPP-16 in regulation of signal transduction in striatal neurons.
