G proteins in medicine.
(N Engl J Med, 1995-01-19)
A C-terminal motif found in the beta2-adrenergic receptor, P2Y1 receptor and cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator determines binding to the Na+/H+ exchanger regulatory factor family of PDZ proteins.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1998-07-21)
The Na+/H+ exchanger regulatory factor (NHERF) binds to the tail of the beta2-adrenergic receptor and plays a role in adrenergic regulation of Na+/H+ exchange. NHERF contains two PDZ domains, the first of which is required ...
Adrenergic receptors. Models for regulation of signal transduction processes.
Adrenergic receptors are prototypic models for the study of the relations between structure and function of G protein-coupled receptors. Each receptor is encoded by a distinct gene. These receptors are integral membrane ...
A beta-adrenergic receptor kinase-like enzyme is involved in olfactory signal termination.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1993-02-15)
We have previously shown that second-messenger-dependent kinases (cAMP-dependent kinase, protein kinase C) in the olfactory system are essential in terminating second-messenger signaling in response to odorants. We now document ...
Chromosomal organization of adrenergic receptor genes.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1990-02)
The adrenergic receptors (ARs) (subtypes alpha 1, alpha 2, beta 1, and beta 2) are a prototypic family of guanine nucleotide binding regulatory protein-coupled receptors that mediate the physiological effects of the hormone ...
The G-protein-coupled receptor phosphatase: a protein phosphatase type 2A with a distinct subcellular distribution and substrate specificity.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1995-08-29)
Phosphorylation of G-protein-coupled receptors plays an important role in regulating their function. In this study the G-protein-coupled receptor phosphatase (GRP) capable of dephosphorylating G-protein-coupled receptor ...
Costimulation of adenylyl cyclase and phospholipase C by a mutant alpha 1B-adrenergic receptor transgene promotes malignant transformation of thyroid follicular cells.
Proliferation of thyroid follicular cells is controlled by three intra-cellular cascades [cAMP, inositol 1,4,5-triphosphate (IP3)/Ca2+/diacylglycerol (DAG), and tyrosine kinases] that are activated by distinct extracellular ...
Direct evidence that Gi-coupled receptor stimulation of mitogen-activated protein kinase is mediated by G beta gamma activation of p21ras.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1994-12-20)
Stimulation of Gi-coupled receptors leads to the activation of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAP kinases). In several cell types, this appears to be dependent on the activation of p21ras (Ras). Which G-protein subunit(s) ...
The G-protein-coupled receptor kinases beta ARK1 and beta ARK2 are widely distributed at synapses in rat brain.
(J Neurosci, 1992-10)
The beta-adrenergic receptor kinase (beta ARK) phosphorylates the agonist-occupied beta-adrenergic receptor to promote rapid receptor uncoupling from Gs, thereby attenuating adenylyl cyclase activity. Beta ARK-mediated receptor ...
Reciprocal in vivo regulation of myocardial G protein-coupled receptor kinase expression by beta-adrenergic receptor stimulation and blockade.
BACKGROUND: Impaired myocardial beta-adrenergic receptor (betaAR) signaling, including desensitization and functional uncoupling, is a characteristic of congestive heart failure. A contributing mechanism for this impairment ...
