beta-Arrestin1 mediates nicotinic acid-induced flushing, but not its antilipolytic effect, in mice.
(J Clin Invest, 2009-05)
Nicotinic acid is one of the most effective agents for both lowering triglycerides and raising HDL. However, the side effect of cutaneous flushing severely limits patient compliance. As nicotinic acid stimulates the GPCR ...
Beta-arrestin-mediated beta1-adrenergic receptor transactivation of the EGFR confers cardioprotection.
(J Clin Invest, 2007-09)
Deleterious effects on the heart from chronic stimulation of beta-adrenergic receptors (betaARs), members of the 7 transmembrane receptor family, have classically been shown to result from Gs-dependent adenylyl ...
