Regulation of G protein-coupled receptor signaling by scaffold proteins.
(Circ Res, 2002-10-18)
The actions of many hormones and neurotransmitters are mediated through stimulation of G protein-coupled receptors. A primary mechanism by which these receptors exert effects inside the cell is by association with heterotrimeric ...
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 ...
The role of β-arrestins in the termination and transduction of G-protein-coupled receptor signals
(Journal of Cell Science, 2002-02-01)
β-arrestins are versatile adapter proteins that form complexes with most G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) following agonist binding and phosphorylation of receptors by G-protein-coupled receptor kinases (GRKs). They play ...
Defective lymphocyte chemotaxis in beta-arrestin2- and GRK6-deficient mice.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2002-05-28)
Lymphocyte chemotaxis is a complex process by which cells move within tissues and across barriers such as vascular endothelium and is usually stimulated by chemokines such as stromal cell-derived factor-1 (CXCL12) acting ...
