G-protein-coupled receptor kinase 2 (GRK2) is a serine/threonine kinase with an important function in the desensitization of G-protein-coupled receptors. Based on its ability to bind G-protein βγ subunits as well as activated Gαq subunits, it can be considered as an effector for G-proteins. The recruitment of GRK2 to activated receptors is well known to be(More)
G protein coupled receptors regulate numerous cellular functions primarily via coupling to heterotrimeric G proteins and subsequent regulation of effector proteins such as ion channels, enzymes or GTP exchange factors for small G proteins. The dynamics of interactions between G protein subunits and effectors have been difficult to study particularly in a(More)
