Epithelial cells are largely immotile under normal circumstances, but become motile during development, repair of tissue damage and during cancer metastasis. Numerous growth factors act to initiate epithelial cell movements. Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) induces many epithelial cell lines to begin crawling. A number of small GTPases act downstream of HGF(More)
When expressed in epithelial cells, cytohesin-2/ARNO, a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for ARF small GTPases, causes a robust migration response. Recent evidence suggests that cytohesin-2/ARNO acts downstream of small the GTPase R-Ras to promote spreading and migration. We hypothesized that cytohesin-2/ARNO could transmit R-Ras signals by(More)
