  • Like the other decoy receptors for chemokines CXCR7 does not activate heterotrimeric G-proteins, a compulsory step for typical signal transduction of heptahelical receptors

  • Ghrelin stimulation of GHS-R1a results in activation of heterotrimeric G proteins followed by receptor phosphorylation that leads to the β-arrestin recruitment, which then sterically interdicts further coupling to G proteins and targets the receptor for internalization

  • Binding of an extracellular ligand to its receptor alters the conformation of the associated heterotrimeric G protein (shown in orange and yellow in Figure 1), causing dissociation of the Ga and GbY subunits and initiating a cascade of cellular events.

  • Since the heterotrimeric Goalpha subunit is expressed in Drosophila olfactory receptor neurons, we reasoned that Go acts together with insect odorant receptor cation channels to mediate odor-induced physiological responses.

  • The full specific activity towards a certain substrate of PP-2A core enzyme is achieved through binding of a variable regulatory subunit to form the heterotrimeric holoenzyme

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • PP-2A exists as either a heterodimeric core enzyme including the scaffold A subunit and catalytic C subunit, or a heterotrimeric holoenzyme consisting of the core enzyme plus one of the regulatory B subunits, thus providing temporal and spatial specificity of PP-2A activity within tissue cells of different organisms.
