GRK1 is a member of the guanine nucleotide protein-coupled (G protein) receptor kinase subfamily of Serine/Threonine kinase family. GRK1 phosphorylates rhodopsin and initiates its deactivation. G protein mediated phosphorylation promotes the binding of arrestin, which removes the receptor from the G-protein and terminates the receptor signal chain. GRK1 is farnesylated to promote membrane association. Studies have shown that GRK1 has been shown to be inhibited by recoverin, a Calcium binding protein. Diseases associated with GRK1 protein dysfunction include Oguchi Disease-2 and Hereditary Night Blindness.
