Arrestin Regulation in Fungi, from Yeast to Filamentous Fungi

Liang Zhou, Xin Wang

Arrestins are a family of scaffold proteins that can be divided into α-arrestins and β-arrestins, which play critical roles in the regulation of numerous cellular processes such as GPCR signaling. Compared with mammals, the research on fungus-related arrestin is not deep enough, and the research on fungal arrestin is mainly carried out around yeast. The main functions of arrestin revolve around GPCRs, and are also involved in pH regulation, related epigenetics, and endocytosis. This review mainly focuses on the above aspects, and focuses on the research of filamentous fungi in recent years.
