Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide. The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system is one of the major regulators of cardiovascular homeostasis and the angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) mediates the main deleterious effects resulting from the hyperactivation of this hormonal system. Beta-arrestins are multifunctional proteins that regulate the desensitization and internalization of G protein-coupled receptors. After the discovery of beta-arrestins, many efforts have been made towards characterizing and distinguishing this new signaling pathway for drug discovery. Here, we summarize recent advances that address the beta-arrestin signaling in the cardiovascular system, focusing on the activation of the AT1R. Copyright © 2022 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
