Technical Data
Arrestin 1, beta (ARRB1, ARB1, ARR1)
The Arrestin family consists of four members: Arrestin 1 (visual Arrestin), Arrestin 2 (beta Arrestin 1), Arrestin 3 (beta Arrestin 2), and Arrestin 4 (cone Arrestin). While visual and cone Arrestins are found almost exclusively in the retina, beta Arrestins 1 and 2 are ubiquitously expressed. Beta Arrestins appear to act as negative regulators on G protein-coupled receptors, (Lefkowitz, 1998). Interaction with molecules such as clathrin, AP-2 and NSF directs the clathrin-mediated internalization of G-protein-coupled receptors. Interaction with molecules such as Src, Raf, Erk, ASK1 and JNK3 appears to regulate several pathways that result in the activation of MAP kinases, (Lin, 1998; Miller, 2001).
