CNF1 toxin is a virulence factor produced by uropathogenic Escherichia coli. Upon cell binding and introduction into the cytosol, CNF1 deamidates glutamine 63 of RhoA (or 61 of Rac and Cdc42), rendering constitutively active these GTPases. Unexpectedly, we measured in bladder cells a transient CNF1-induced activation of Rho GTPases, maximal for Rac.(More)
