Rho proteins are down-regulated in vivo by specific GTPase activating proteins (RhoGAP). We have functionally studied three Saccharomyces cerevisiae putative RhoGAP. By first identifying Rho partners with a systematic two-hybrid approach and then using an in vitro assay, we have demonstrated that the Bag7 protein stimulated the GTPase activity of the Rho1(More)
The non-essential RGD1 gene from Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes a protein that has been characterized in vitro as a Rho GTPase activating protein (RhoGAP) for the Rho3 and Rho4 proteins. Rgd1p, which displays a conserved FCH-coiled coil-Rho-GAP domain organization, showed a patch-like distribution in the cell, including a localization in growing buds.(More)
The RGD1 gene, identified during sequencing of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome, encodes a protein with a Rho-GTPase activating protein (GAP) domain at the carboxy-terminal end. The Rgd1 protein showed two-hybrid interactions with the activated forms of Rho2p, Rho3p and Rho4p. Using in vitro assays, we demonstrated that Rgd1p stimulated the GTPase(More)
We identified the ORF YBR264c during the systematic sequencing of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome. It encodes a putative protein of 218 amino acids. We demonstrate here that the gene is indeed expressed and encodes a new Ypt in yeast. This protein specifically binds guanine nucleotides and interacts via its C-terminal end with the unique Rab GDP(More)
