Two patterns of rapid desensitization have been characterized for G protein-coupled receptors: homologous desensitization, which mainly involves G protein-coupled receptor kinases and arrestins, and heterologous desensitization, which mainly involves protein kinases A (PKA) and C (PKC). In this review, Tsu Tshen Chuang and colleagues discuss evidence to show that PKA and PKC can modify the functional state of the G protein-coupled receptor kinases/arrestin homologous desensitization machinery, providing a novel level of cross-talk in signal transduction. Studies on regulation of G protein-coupled receptor kinases and arrestins confirm that the functional state of this machinery may have important consequences for cellular responsiveness and may represent new targets for therapeutic strategies.

Abstract

Two patterns of rapid desensitization have been characterized for G protein-coupled receptors: homologous desensitization, which mainly involves G protein-coupled receptor kinases and arrestins, and heterologous desensitization, which mainly involves protein kinases A (PKA) and C (PKC). In this review, Tsu Tshen Chuang and colleagues discuss evidence to show that PKA and PKC can modify the functional state of the G protein-coupled receptor kinases/arrestin homologous desensitization machinery, providing a novel level of cross-talk in signal transduction. Studies on regulation of G protein-coupled receptor kinases and arrestins confirm that the functional state of this machinery may have important consequences for cellular responsiveness and may represent new targets for therapeutic strategies.
