Human G-protein coupled receptor kinase 6 (GRK6) belongs to the GRK4 kinase subfamily of the G protein-coupled receptor kinase family which comprises of GRK1, GRK2, and GRK4. These kinases phosphorylate ligand-activated G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), driving heterotrimeric G protein coupling, desensitization of GPCR, and β-arrestin recruitment. This reaction series mediates cellular signal pathways for cell survival, proliferation, migration and chemotaxis. GRK6 is a kinase target in multiple myeloma since it is highly expressed in myeloma cells compared to epithelial cells and has a significant role in mediating the chemotactic responses of T and B-lymphocytes. To support structure-based drug design, we... More
