AbstractG protein-coupled receptor kinase 2 (GRK2) is emerging as a key, integrative node in many signalling pathways. Besides its canonical role in the modulation of the signalling mediated by many G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR), this protein can display a very complex network of functional interactions with a variety of signal transduction partners, in a stimulus, cell type, or context-specific way. We review herein recent data showing that GRK2 can regulate insulin-triggered transduction cascades at different levels and that this protein plays a relevant role in insulin resistance and obesity in vivo, what uncovers GRK2 as a potential therapeutic target in the treatment of these disorders.
