Ligand-induced β-arrestin recruitment activates signaling cascades independent of G-protein signaling to provide non-amplified signal. β-Arrestin recruitment assays offer an alternative to second messenger assays to enable enhanced profiling of compound pharmacology. However, studying β-arrestin recruitment to various proteins is challenging as there are limited options available for scientists to cost-effectively make their own cell lines.

Join us for a 30-minute webinar to learn how to make your own cell-based assays to analyze β-arrestin recruitment in any cell type. Use these assays to analyze tissue-specific variations, compare ligand responses in different species (orthologs), evaluate specific GPCR mutants that cause disease, or study non-GPCR β-arrestin-interacting proteins.

What will be covered?

  • Overview of β-arrestin biology
  • Tools needed to create your own β-arrestin cell lines and assays
  • Experimental design and workflows
  • Applications of β-arrestin cell-based assays for GPCRs

Who should attend?

  • GPCR and non-GPCR β-arrestin-interacting proteins scientists
  • Researchers developing cell lines and cell-based assays
  • Basic research and assay development drug discovery scientists
