Beta-arrestin is involved in the desensitization but not in the internalization of the somatostatin receptor 2A expressed in CHO cells.

The interaction of beta-arrestin-1 with the somatostatin receptor type 2A (sst2A) was monitored using both biochemical and confocal imaging approaches. We show that, using transient transfection of either beta-arrestin-1 or its dominant negative Delta-arrestin-1 in CHO cells stably transfected with the sst2A, beta-arrestin-1 is colocalized with the receptor in endosomal vesicles after somatostatin-induced sequestration. However, this interaction leads to a role of beta-arrestin-1 in the desensitization of the sst2A rather than in the internalization process of the receptor-ligand complex.[1]
