A possibility of the long-term modification of inborn behavioral features of different mice genotypes (C57B1/6 and BALB/c) by active immunization with dopamine-bovine serum albumin conjugate was investigated. Significant interstrain differences were found in the effects of dopamine antibodies on the open-field behavior and the content of neurotransmitters in the brain cortex and striatum. It was shown that the active immunization of mice to dopamine produces an increase in the functional activity of brain dopamine receptors. The extent, to which this increase is pronounced, is genotype-dependent.
