G protein-coupled receptor kinases 2 and 5 are differentially expressed in rat skeletal muscle and remain unchanged following beta2-agonist administration.

Abstract

Chronic stimulation of beta2-receptors with beta2-agonists causes desensitisation, which in skeletal muscle is accompanied by myosin heavy chain (MHC) remodelling, similar to that observed in heart failure patients. However, the mechanisms for this skeletal muscle remodelling are not well established. G protein-coupled receptor kinases (GRKs) specifically… (More)
