The classical model for the uncoupling and desensitization of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) involves the phosphorylation of the agonist-bound receptor by G protein coupled receptor kinases (GRK), followed by the binding of arrestin to the GRK phosphorylated agonist-activated receptor. We reconstituted D2-dopamine receptor (D2R) signaling in Xenopus oocytes to show that arrestin-mediated uncoupling of D2R from associated G proteins (Gαβγ) occurs independently of GRKs.
