Adrenergic beta receptor kinase 1
Beta adrenergic receptor kinase 1
Beta ARK 1
Beta-adrenergic receptor kinase 1
G protein coupled receptor kinase 2
G-protein coupled receptor kinase 2
FunctionSpecifically phosphorylates the agonist-occupied form of the beta-adrenergic and closely related receptors, probably inducing a desensitization of them. Key regulator of LPAR1 signaling. Competes with RALA for binding to LPAR1 thus affecting the signaling properties of the receptor. Desensitizes LPAR1 and LPAR2 in a phosphorylation-independent manner.
Tissue specificityExpressed in peripheral blood leukocytes.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. GPRK subfamily. Contains 1 AGC-kinase C-terminal domain. Contains 1 PH domain. Contains 1 protein kinase domain. Contains 1 RGS domain.
