Gα13 stimulates the guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) for Rho, such as p115Rho-GEF. Activated Rho induces numerous cellular responses, including actin polymerization, serum response element (SRE)-dependent gene transcription and transformation. p115Rho-GEF contains a Regulator of G protein Signalling domain (RGS box) that confers GTPase activating protein (GAP) activity towards Gα12 and Gα13 (ref. 3). In contrast, classical RGS proteins (such as RGS16 and RGS4) exhibit RGS domain…

Application of RGS box proteins to evaluate G-protein selectivity in receptor-promoted signaling.
TLDR
The use of specific RGS domain constructs to discriminate among G(i/o), Gq-and G(12/13)-mediated activation of phospholipase C (PLC) isozymes in COS-7 cells is described.
R4 RGS proteins: regulation of G-protein signaling and beyond.
TLDR
This review highlights recent advances in the understanding of the physiological functions of one subfamily of RGS proteins with a high degree of homology (B/R4) gleaned from recent studies of knockout mice or cells with reduced RGS expression.
Regulation of RhoGEF proteins by G12/13‐coupled receptors
  • S. Siehler
  • Biology, Medicine
    British journal of pharmacology
  • 2009
TLDR
An overview of G 12/13 signalling of GPCRs with a focus on RhoGEF proteins as the immediate mediators of G12/13 activation is given, which provides novel therapeutic approaches for cancer, cardiovascular diseases, arterial and pulmonary hypertension, and bronchial asthma.
Multi-tasking RGS proteins in the heart: the next therapeutic target?
TLDR
RGS proteins are regulators of cardiovascular physiology and potentially novel drug targets as well because of the importance of GPCR-signaling pathways and the profound influence of RGS proteins on these pathways.
Gα13 regulates MEF2-dependent gene transcription in endothelial cells: role in angiogenesis
TLDR
It is shown that myocyte-specific enhancer factor-2 (MEF2) mediates G α13-dependent angiogenesis and that MEF2 proteins are an important component in Gα13-mediatedAngiogenesis.
The superfamily of "regulator of g-protein signaling" (rgs) proteins
TLDR
A large family of seven transmembrane-domain receptors for hormones, neurotransmitters, growth factors, chemoattractants, light, odorants, and other extracellular stimuli promote intracellular signaling responses by activation of heterotrimeric G proteins, which include additional functionalities beyond their hallmark capacity to act as GAPs for Gα subunits.
Regulators of G-protein-signaling proteins: negative modulators of G-protein-coupled receptor signaling.
TLDR
Human and animal studies have revealed that RGS proteins play a vital role in physiology and can be ideal targets for diseases such as those related to addiction where receptor signaling seems continuously switched on.
Protein kinase inhibitor β enhances the constitutive activity of G-protein-coupled zinc receptor GPR39.
TLDR
Mutation of this domain abolished the inhibitory activity of PKIB on protein kinase A activity, but had no effect on the interaction with GPR39, cell protection and induction of SRE-dependent transcription.
Regulator of G‐Protein Signaling 16 Is a Negative Modulator of Platelet Function and Thrombosis
TLDR
A critical role for R GS16 in regulating hemostatic and thrombotic functions of platelets in mice is supported and RGS16 represents a potential therapeutic target for modulating platelet function.
G12/13-dependent signaling of G-protein-coupled receptors: disease context and impact on drug discovery
  • S. Siehler
  • Biology, Medicine
    Expert opinion on drug discovery
  • 2007
TLDR
The review gives an overview of the present understanding of the G12/13-related biology of GPCR and finds many GPCRs were found to couple to G 12/13 proteins in addition to coupling to one or more other types of G proteins.

Leukemia-Associated Rho Guanine Nucleotide Exchange Factor Promotes Gαq-Coupled Activation of RhoA
TLDR
These findings suggest that the RhoA exchange factor LARG, unlike the related p115 Rho GEF and PDZ-RhoGEF proteins, can serve as an effector for Gq-coupled receptors, mediating their functional linkage to RHoA-dependent signaling pathways.
Functional Characterization of the G Protein Regulator RGS13*
TLDR
The characterization of R GS13, the smallest member of the RGS family, which has been cloned from human lung, suggests that RGS13 may regulate Gαi-, Gαq-, and Gαs-coupled signaling cascades.
The GTPase-activating Protein RGS4 Stabilizes the Transition State for Nucleotide Hydrolysis*
TLDR
RGS4 stabilizes the transition state for GTP hydrolysis, as evidenced by its high affinity for the GDP-AlF4−-bound forms of Goα and Giα and its relatively low affinity forThe GTPγS- and GDP- bound forms of these proteins.
A Rho Exchange Factor Mediates Thrombin and Gα12-induced Cytoskeletal Responses*
TLDR
The Gα12 protein family is identified as transducers of thrombin signaling to the cytoskeleton and the first evidence that a Rho-GEF transduces signals between G protein-coupled receptors and RHo-mediated cytoskeletal responses is provided.
Palmitoylation Regulates Regulators of G-protein Signaling (RGS) 16 Function
TLDR
Results suggest that the amino-terminal palmitoylation of an RGS protein promotes its lipid raft targeting that allows palmitoyslation of a poorly accessible cysteine residue that was critical for RGS16 and RGS4 GAP activity.
The regulators of G protein signaling (RGS) domains of RGS4, RGS10, and GAIP retain GTPase activating protein activity in vitro.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the RGS domains of RGS4, RGS10, and GAIP retain GTPase accelerating activity with the Gi class substrates Gialpha1, Goalpha, and Gzalpha in vitro.
The role of Rho in G protein-coupled receptor signal transduction.
TLDR
G alpha 12/13 can bind and activate Rho-specific guanine nucleotide exchange factors, providing a mechanism by which GPCRs that couple to G alpha12/13 could activate RHo and its downstream responses.
Src-mediated RGS16 Tyrosine Phosphorylation Promotes RGS16 Stability*
TLDR
It is shown that endogenous RGS16 is phosphorylated after epidermal growth factor stimulation of MCF-7 cells, and results suggest that Src mediates R GS16 tyrosine phosphorylation, which may promote RGS 16 stability.
GTPase-activating proteins for heterotrimeric G proteins: regulators of G protein signaling (RGS) and RGS-like proteins.
TLDR
GAP activity can sharpen the termination of a signal upon removal of stimulus, attenuate a signal either as a feedback inhibitor or in response to a second input, promote regulatory association of other proteins, or redirect signaling within a G protein signaling network.
