Breaking, from Mousavi’s Facebook page:

URGENT: Ali Reza Beheshti, Mousavi’s top advisor, has been arrested!
Beheshti was son of martyred Ayatollah Beheshti and Mousavi’s top advisor and his representative in the special committee investigating prisoners’ abuse cases. Morteza Alviri, Karou…bi’s representative in the special committee was also arrests earlier.

Ali Reza Beheshti has been in the news constantly, speaking as one of–if not the–central figure in Mousavi’s tight inner circle.  Most recently, Beheshti released a revised figure yesterday of the number of protesters killed in the aftermath of Iran’s election in June.  According to Beheshti, that number is at least 72.
According to the blog Enduring America (not one to sensationalize):

The only step up from this action is the arrest of leaders such as Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi.
