The present study demonstrates that homocysteine exerts an allosteric modulation of dopamine D2 receptors, reducing the affinity of D2 receptors for agonists but not for antagonists. With mass spectrometry techniques it is shown that, by means of an arginine (Arg)−thiol electrostatic interaction, homocysteine forms noncovalent complexes with the two Arg-rich epitopes of the third intracellular loop of the D2 receptor, one of them involved in adenosine A2A−dopamine D2 receptor heteromerization.
