Summary of DRD1

This gene encodes D1 dopamine receptors, which regulates neuronal growth and behavior (R). 

The D1 receptor improves mood and lowers anxiety.

The DRD1 gene expresses primarily in the caudate putamen in humans.

The D1 receceptor is the most abundant dopamine receptor in the brain. It stimulates adenylate cyclase.

It's better to have this gene increased most of the time.
