Target

  • FunctionRetina-specific kinase involved in the signal turnoff via phosphorylation of rhodopsin (RHO), the G protein- coupled receptor that initiates the phototransduction cascade. This rapid desensitization is essential for scotopic vision and permits rapid adaptation to changes in illumination.
  • Tissue specificityRetinal-specific. Expressed in rods and cones cells.
  • Involvement in diseaseNight blindness, congenital stationary, Oguchi type 2
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. GPRK subfamily.
    Contains 1 AGC-kinase C-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    Contains 1 RGS domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Autophosphorylated, Ser-21 is a minor site of autophosphorylation compared to Ser-491 and Thr-492 (By similarity). Phosphorylation at Ser-21 is regulated by light and activated by cAMP.
    Farnesylation is required for full activity.

Anti-GRK1 antibody [D11] images

  • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of GRK1 (green) in murine cells. Formalin-fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 5-10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with 3% BSA-PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature. Cells were incubated with ab2776 (1:200) overnight in a humidified chamber. Cells were washed with PBST and incubated with a DyLight-conjugated secondary antibody for 45 minutes at room temperature in the dark. F-actin (red) was stained with a fluorescent phalloidin and nuclei (blue) were stained with DAPI. Images were taken at a 60X magnification.
