Molecular physiopathology of obesity-related diseases: multi-organ integration by GRK2.
Madrid, Spain. In Arch Physiol Biochem, Dec 2015
In particular, we focus on the importance of studying the integrated regulation of different organs and pathways that contribute to the global pathophysiology of this condition with a specific emphasis on the role of emerging key molecular nodes such as the G protein-coupled receptor kinase 2 (GRK2) signalling hub.

We further determined that G protein-coupled receptor kinase 6 (GRK6), originally identified as a kinase responsible for the desensitization and downregulation of G-protein-coupled receptors, activates Rac1 independent of the two known intracellular engulfment pathways in phagocytes.
Neuroinflammation and comorbidity of pain and depression.
Houston, United States. In Pharmacol Rev, 2013
These mechanisms include direct effects of cytokines on the neuronal environment or indirect effects via downregulation of G protein-coupled receptor kinase 2, activation of the tryptophan-degrading enzyme indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase that generates neurotropic kynurenine metabolites, increased brain extracellular glutamate, and the switch of GABAergic neurotransmission from inhibition to excitation.
Bidirectional regulation of neutrophil migration by mitogen-activated protein kinases.
Chicago, United States. In Nat Immunol, 2012
The extracellular signal-regulated kinase Erk potentiated activity of the G protein-coupled receptor kinase GRK2 and inhibited neutrophil migration, whereas the MAPK p38 acted as a noncanonical GRK that phosphorylated the formyl peptide receptor FPR1 and facilitated neutrophil migration by blocking GRK2 function.
A tale of two kinases in rods and cones.
Chapel Hill, United States. In Adv Exp Med Biol, 2011
Defects in GRK1 or GRK7 cause patients to suffer from an inability to properly deactivate rhodopsin leading to problems with recovery and dark adaptation.
Oguchi disease masked by retinitis pigmentosa.
Kumamoto, Japan. In Doc Ophthalmol, 2011
There are two genes that cause Oguchi disease: the G protein-coupled receptor kinase 1 gene and the S antigen gene. There is evidence that Oguchi disease and retinitis pigmentosa (RP) can coexist in the same family or even in the same individual
