The small GTP-binding protein Arf6 reorganizes the actin cytoskeleton through the regulation of Rac activity. We identified FilGAP, a Rac-specific Rho GTPase-activating protein that is recruited to plasma membranes by binding to activated Arf6. FilGAP binds to Arf6 through its pleckstrin homology domain. Activated Arf6 stimulated RacGAP activity of FilGAP,(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The small GTPase ADP ribosylation factor 6 (ARF6) promotes carcinoma cell invasion and metastasis through remodeling of actin cytoskeleton and formation of pseudopod that is regulated by RAC. RHO GTPase activating protein 24 (ARHGAP24), a RAC-specific GTPase activating protein, binds to activated ARF6 and is recruited to the plasma membrane.(More)
