Stimulation of D3, and possibly D2, dopamine receptors transiently activates Akt in the medium-size spiny neurons of the dorsal striatum and nucleus accumbens. Activated Akt can phosphorylate GSK-3β and, indirectly, several effectors of mTORC1: p70S6 kinase (p70S6K), ribosomal protein-S6 (rpS6), and eukaryotic initiation factor-4E binding protein-1 (4E-BP1). These pathways may underpin the actions of D3 receptors on diverse cerebral functions.
