beta-arrestin-1 competitively inhibits insulin-induced ubiquitination and degradation of insulin receptor substrate 1.
(Mol Cell Biol, 2004-10)
beta-arrestin-1 is an adaptor protein that mediates agonist-dependent internalization and desensitization of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and also participates in the process of heterologous desensitization between ...
β-Arrestin-2 regulates the development of allergic asthma
(Journal of Clinical Investigation, 2003-08-01)
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways that is coordinated by Th2 cells in both human asthmatics and animal models of allergic asthma. Migration of Th2 cells to the lung is key to their inflammatory function ...
Anti–β1-adrenergic receptor antibodies and heart failure: causation, not just correlation
(Journal of Clinical Investigation, 2004-05-15)
Intracoronary adenovirus-mediated delivery and overexpression of the beta(2)-adrenergic receptor in the heart : prospects for molecular ventricular assistance.
BACKGROUND: Genetic modulation of ventricular function may offer a novel therapeutic strategy for patients with congestive heart failure. Myocardial overexpression of beta(2)-adrenergic receptors (beta(2)ARs) has been shown ...
Enhanced rewarding properties of morphine, but not cocaine, in beta(arrestin)-2 knock-out mice.
(J Neurosci, 2003-11-12)
The reinforcing and psychomotor effects of morphine involve opiate stimulation of the dopaminergic system via activation of mu-opioid receptors (muOR). Both mu-opioid and dopamine receptors are members of the G-protein-coupled ...
Differential mechanisms of morphine antinociceptive tolerance revealed in (beta)arrestin-2 knock-out mice.
(J Neurosci, 2002-12-01)
Morphine induces antinociception by activating mu opioid receptors (muORs) in spinal and supraspinal regions of the CNS. (Beta)arrestin-2 (beta)arr2), a G-protein-coupled receptor-regulating protein, regulates the muOR in ...
Characterising phase variations in MALDI-TOF data and correcting them by peak alignment.
(Cancer Inform, 2005)
The use of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry as a means of analyzing the proteome has been evaluated extensively in recent years. One of the limitations of this technique that has impeded the development of robust data analysis ...
The temporal dynamics of implicit processing of non-letter, letter, and word-forms in the human visual cortex.
(Frontiers in human neuroscience, 2009-01)
The decoding of visually presented line segments into letters, and letters into words, is critical to fluent reading abilities. Here we investigate the temporal dynamics of visual orthographic processes, focusing specifically ...
BOLD signal compartmentalization based on the apparent diffusion coefficient.
(Magn Reson Imaging, 2002-09)
Functional MRI (fMRI) can detect blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) hemodynamic responses secondary to neuronal activity. The most commonly used method for detecting fMRI signals is the gradient-echo echo-planar imaging ...
Independent beta-arrestin 2 and G protein-mediated pathways for angiotensin II activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinases 1 and 2.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2003-09-16)
Stimulation of a mutant angiotensin type 1A receptor (DRY/AAY) with angiotensin II (Ang II) or of a wild-type receptor with an Ang II analog ([sarcosine1,Ile4,Ile8]Ang II) fails to activate classical heterotrimeric G protein ...
