    AtRGS1 is a unique protein in the system of G-protein signaling, which contains two functionally opposite domains: 7TM and RGS. Our data revealed a novel role of the RGS domain in regulating AtRGS1 trafficking from the trans-Golgi network (TGN) to plasma membrane.The secretory pathway is...

Pertubations in GPCR signaling have pathophysiological consequences and are major contributors to cardiac disease....

    The regulation of macrophage recruitment and retention into the vascular wall is critical in the progression of atherosclerosis and aortic aneurysm formation. This can be mediated by chemokine activation of multiple G-protein coupled receptors. The Regulator of G-Protein Signalling-1 (RGS1) acts...

    Nitric oxide (NO) inhibits vascular contraction by activating cGMP-dependent protein kinase I-a (PKGI-a), which causes dephosphorylation of myosin light chain (MLC) and vascular smooth muscle relaxation. Here we show that PKGI-a attenuates signaling by the thrombin receptor protease-activated...

    Objective: Regulators of G-protein signaling protein 2 (RGS2) play an irreplaceable role in the control of normal blood pressure (BP). One RGS2 (-391, C>G) genetic variation markedly changes its mRNA expression levels. This study explored the relationship between this genetic variation and the...

    Reference genes (RGs) with uniform expression are used for normalization of reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) data. Their optimization for a specific biological context, e.g. a specific tissue, has been increasingly considered. In this article, we compare RGs identified by...
