The role of GRK6 in animal models of Parkinson's disease and L-DOPA treatment.
(Sci Rep, 2012)
G protein-coupled Receptor Kinase 6 (GRK6) belongs to a family of kinases that phosphorylate GPCRs. GRK6 levels were found to be altered in Parkinson's Disease (PD) and D(2) dopamine receptors are supersensitive in mice ...
The dopamine metabolite 3-methoxytyramine is a neuromodulator.
(PLoS One, 2010-10-18)
Dopamine (3-hydroxytyramine) is a well-known catecholamine neurotransmitter involved in multiple physiological functions including movement control. Here we report that the major extracellular metabolite of dopamine, ...
Smoothened signal transduction is promoted by G protein-coupled receptor kinase 2.
(Mol Cell Biol, 2006-10)
Deregulation of the Sonic hedgehog pathway has been implicated in an increasing number of human cancers. In this pathway, the seven-transmembrane (7TM) signaling protein Smoothened regulates cellular proliferation ...
