(1) Adrenaline (ADR) and noradrenaline (NA) can simultaneously activate inhibitory alpha(2)- and stimulatory beta-adrenoceptors (AR). However, ADR and NA differ significantly in that ADR is a potent beta(2)-AR agonist while NA is not. Only recently has the interaction resulting from the simultaneous activation of alpha(2)- and beta(2)-AR been examined at the cellular level to determine the mechanisms of alpha(2)-AR regulation following concomitant activation of both alpha(2)- and beta(2)-ARs by… Expand
The presence of β2-adrenoceptors sensitizes α2A-adrenoceptors to desensitization after chronic epinephrine treatment
This study reports that after transfection of functional β2-AR into SH-SY5Y cells (SHβ2AR4), chronic treatment with modest levels of EPI desensitizes the α2A-AR, further supporting the hypothesis that the presence of the β-AR renders the α1-AR more susceptible to desensitization with physiological levels ofEPI.

Simultaneous α2B- and β2-Adrenoceptor Activation Sensitizes the α2B-Adrenoceptor for Agonist-Induced Down-Regulation
We recently reported that α2A-adrenoceptor (AR) desensitization and down-regulation occurs after 24-h treatment with epinephrine (EPI) (0.3 μM) in BE(2)-C cells that express both α2- and β2-ARs. TheExpand
Cellular G Protein-Coupled Receptor Kinase Levels Regulate Sensitivity of the α2B-Adrenergic Receptor to Undergo Agonist-Induced Down-Regulation
This is the first report to systematically demonstrate that GRKs, particularly GRK3, play a pivotal role in modulating the agonist EC50 concentration that down-regulates the α2B-AR and thus adds a new dimension to an already intricate signaling network. Expand
Involvement of G Protein-Coupled Receptor Kinase (GRK) 3 and GRK2 in Down-Regulation of the α2B-Adrenoceptor
Strong evidence is provided for a critical role of both GRK3 and GRK2 in down-regulation of the α2B-AR and contributes significantly to the increasing evidence in the literature for a pivotal role of GRKs in modulating the agonist-induced down- regulation of theα2-AR. Expand
Activation of the CRF1 receptor causes ERK1/2 mediated increase in GRK3 expression in CATH.a cells
It is demonstrated for the first time, that the stress hormone, CRF selectively up‐regulates GRK3 expression via an ERK1/2‐mediated mechanism accompanied by the activation of Sp‐1 and Ap‐2 transcription factors. Expand
Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinase 1/2-Mediated Transcriptional Regulation of G-Protein-Coupled Receptor Kinase 3 Expression in Neuronal Cells
The involvement of the ERK1/2 pathway in selective up-regulation of GRK3 mRNA expression is demonstrated, possibly via activation of Sp-1 and Ap-2 transcription factors in neuronal cells. Expand
Role of 90-kDa Heat Shock Protein (Hsp 90) and Protein Degradation in Regulating Neuronal Levels of G Protein-Coupled Receptor Kinase 3
Several mechanisms influence the degradation of GRK3 and therefore have the potential to affect GPCR signaling by regulatingGRK3 levels in neurons. Expand
Chronic adrenaline treatment fails to down‐regulate the Del301–303‐α2B‐adrenoceptor in neuronal cells
The present study was undertaken to study agonist‐induced down‐regulation of the wild‐type (WT)‐ and Del301–303‐α2B‐adrenoceptor in a neuronal cell model. Expand
GRK3 is a direct target of CREB activation and regulates neuroendocrine differentiation of prostate cancer cells
It is demonstrated that the ADT-activated cAMP response element binding protein (CREB) directly targets and induces GRK3, a new critical activator of NE phenotypes and mediator of CREB activation in promoting NED of prostate cancer cells. Expand
G Protein-Coupled Receptor Kinases
The importance of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) kinases (GRKs) as regulators of GPCR signaling has been widely recognized. In humans, GRKs constitute a family of seven protein kinases involved inExpand
