Glutamic acid regulation of Dopamine D1A receptor signaling
Glutamic acid is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. The excitation of medium spiny neurons is regulated by a balance of glutamatergic inputs from corticostriatal and thalamostriatal pathways and dopaminergic inputs from the nigrostriatal pathway .
Dopamine D1A receptor signaling cascade, that contains a specific Guanine nucleotide binding protein GNAS complex locus ( G-protein alpha-s )/ Adenylate cyclase type V/ Cyclic adenosine monophosphate ( cAMP ), activates cAMP-dependent protein kinase ( PKA ). PKA phosphorylates DARPP-32 at Thr 34 ,  and/or protein Phosphatase 1, regulatory subunit 1A ( IPP-1 ) at Thr 35 . Thr 35-phosphorylated IPP-1 and Thr 34-phosphorylated DARPP-32 inhibit Protein phosphatase1 catalytic subunit ( PP1-cat ) , .
PKA and PP1-cat regulate the phosphorylation state and activity of many physiological effectors, including neurotransmitter receptors that regulate excitability of medium spiny neurons. PP-1 inhibition and/or PKA activation may lead to stimulation of Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor ( GABA-A receptor )  and/or cAMP responsive element binding protein 1 ( CREB1 ) .
It is shown, that Glutamic acid may regulate Dopamine D1A receptor signaling via multiple receptors, e.g., Glutamate receptor, metabotropic 1 ( mGluR1)  , Glutamate receptor ionotropic N-methyl D-aspartate ( NMDA ) and Glutamate receptor ionotrophic AMPA ( AMPA ) . All three receptors raise cytosolic Ca 2+ level. mGluR1 activates a cascade that composes of G-protein alpha-q/ Phospholipase C, beta 1 ( PLC beta 1 )/ Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate ( IP3 ). This cascade activates Ca2+ transport from endoplasmic reticulum to cytosol . NMDA and AMPA activate Ca2+ transport from extracellular region to cytosol . Cytosol Ca 2+ activates Protein phosphatase 3 ( Calcineurin ) , /
Calcineurin dephosphorylates inhibitory autophosphorylation sites of Casein Kinase I epsilon resulting in its activation . Casein Kinase I epsilon activates cyclin-dependent kinase 5 regulatory subunit 1 ( CDK5R1(p35 ))/ Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 ( CDK5 ) . CDK5, in turn, stimulates the phosphorylation of DARPP-32 at Thr-75 ,  and IPP-1 at Ser 67 . DARPP-32 phosphorylated at Thr 75 inhibits PKA. IPP-1 phosphorylated at Ser 67 does not inhibit PP1-cat . This leads to activation of PP-1cat and synergistically reduces phosphorylation of its various common substrates.
Ser 67-phosphorylated IPP-1 may be dephosphorylated by Calcineurin . It leads to inhibit of PP-1cat.
Moreover, Glutamic acid via NMDA and AMPA raise intracellular Ca2+. This stimulates Protein phosphatase 2 ( PP2A ), possibly via Calmodulin/ Striatin calmodulin binding proteins ( Striatin and SG2NA ) , . PP2A directly dephosphorylates DARPP-32 at Thr 75 ,  and IPP-1 at Ser 67 . The latter leads to activation of PP-1 cat.
