␤-and ␣ 2 –adrenergic receptors are known to exhibit substantial cross-talk and mutual regulation in tissues where they are expressed together. We have found that the ␤ 1-adrenergic receptor (␤ 1 AR) and ␣ 2A-adrenergic receptor (␣ 2A AR) heterodimerize when coexpressed in cells. Immunoprecipitation studies with differentially tagged ␤ 1 AR and ␣ 2A AR(More)
P2Y(1) purinergic receptors (P2Y(1)Rs) mediate rises in intracellular Ca(2+) in response to ATP, but the duration and characteristics of this Ca(2+) response are known to vary markedly in distinct cell types. We screened the P2Y(1)R carboxyl terminus against a recently created proteomic array of PDZ (PSD-95/Drosophila Discs large/ZO-1 homology) domains and(More)
G protein-coupled receptors such as the beta1-adrenergic receptor (beta1AR) must be trafficked to the plasma membrane in order to bind with their extracellular ligands and regulate cellular physiology. By using glutathione S-transferase pull-down techniques, we found that the beta1AR carboxyl terminus directly interacts with the cystic fibrosis(More)
The beta(1)-adrenergic receptor (beta(1)AR) has one predicted site of N-linked glycosylation on its extracellular amino-terminus, but the glycosylation and potential functional importance of this site have not yet been examined. We show here that the beta(1)AR is glycosylated in various cell types and that mutation of the single predicted site of N-linked(More)
Many G protein-coupled receptors possess carboxyl-terminal motifs ideal for interaction with PDZ scaffold proteins, which can control receptor trafficking and signaling in a cell-specific manner. To gain a panoramic view of beta1-adrenergic receptor (beta AR) interactions with PDZ scaffolds, the beta1AR carboxyl terminus was screened against a newly(More)
The two members of the group I metabotropic glutamate receptor family, mGluR1 and mGluR5, both couple to G(q) to mediate rises in intracellular calcium. The alternatively spliced C termini (CT) of mGluRs1 and 5are known to be critical for regulating receptor activity and to terminate in motifs suggestive of potential interactions with PDZ domains. We(More)
Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a mediator of multiple cellular responses. LPA mediates its effects predominantly through the G protein-coupled receptors LPA1, LPA2, and LPA3. In the present work, we studied LPA2-mediated signaling using human colon cancer cell lines, which predominantly express LPA2. LPA2 activated Akt and Erk1/2 in response to LPA. LPA(More)
