corpus striatum, striate body, Corpus striatum

General information

The caudate and lentiform nuclei; the striate appearance on section is caused by slender fascicles of myelinated fibers; histologically, the striate body can be subdivided into the generally small-celled striatum, consisting of the caudate nucleus and the outer segment of the lentiform nucleus, and a large-celled globus pallidus composed of the two segments

      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: acetylcholine

        Influenced by:

        • dopamine receptor D2
          in corpus_striatum
          • Stimulation of D-2 dopamine receptors inhibite therelease of ACh. [1]
      • Hormone: glutamate

      • Hormone: Virodhamine

        • The concentration of virodhamine was lower than anandamide. [2]
      • Hormone: CGRP1

      • Hormone: neuromedin N

      • Hormone: dopamine

        Influenced by:

        • 5-HT3 receptor
          in nucleus_accumbens
          • Stimulation of 5-HT-3 receptors mediate a dose-dopendent increase of DA release. [3]


      • Receptor: PRLR

      • Receptor: SPR

        Induced phenotype:

        • sensory perception of pain
          • SP modulates pain centrally and peripherally. Receptor expression has high density in the striatum, amygdala and dorsolaterla prefrontal cortex [4]
      • Receptor: 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 4

      • Receptor: 5-ht-6R

      • Receptor: 5-HT-2C


        • dopamine
          • Stimulate 5-HT-2C receptors localized within the striatum have an inhibitory controll of the dopamine release in the nitrostriatal pathway. [5]
      • Receptor: dopamine receptor D2


        • acetylcholine
          • Stimulation of D-2 dopamine receptors inhibite therelease of ACh. [1]
      • Receptor: dopamine receptor D3
