Mitochondrial Rac1 GTPase Import and Electron Transfer from Cytochrome c Are Required for Pulmonary Fibrosis*
TLDR
This study shows that Rac1 is localized in the mitochondria of alveolar macrophages from asbestosis patients, and mitochondrial import requires the C-terminal cysteine of Rac1 (Cys-189), which is post-translationally modified by geranylgeranylation. Expand
Targeting the isoprenoid pathway to abrogate progression of pulmonary fibrosis.
TLDR
Observations reveal that targeting the isoprenoid pathway to alter Rac1 geranylgeranylation halts the progression of pulmonary fibrosis after lung injury. Expand
