Identification of the Region in Cdc42 That Confers the Binding Specificity to Activated Cdc42-associated Kinase*
TLDR
The studies have defined a specific ACK-binding region in Cdc42 and have provided a molecular basis for generating ACK binding-defective mutants of CDC42 to delineate ACk-mediated signaling pathway.
Investigation of the Interaction between Cdc42 and Its Effector TOCA1
TLDR
The structure of the HR1 domain of TocA1 is solved, providing the first structural data for this protein, and it is found that the TOCA1 HR1, like the closely related CIP4HR1, has interesting structural features that are not observed in other HR1 domains.
Cdc42: An Essential Rho-Type GTPase Controlling Eukaryotic Cell Polarity
TLDR
In the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Cdc42p plays an important role in multiple actin-dependent morphogenetic events such as bud emergence, mating-projection formation, and pseudohyphal growth.
RICH-1, a multifunctional RhoGAP domain-containing protein, involved in regulation of the actin filament system and membrane-trafficking.
TLDR
Ectopic expression of the RhoGAP domain as well as the full-length protein interfered with platelet-derived growth factor BB-induced membrane ruffling, but not with serum-induced stress fiber formation, further emphasizing the notion that, in vivo, RICH-1 is a GAP for Cdc42 and Rac1.
RhoGTPase signaling in cell polarity and gene regulation.
TLDR
The work presented here has increased the knowledge of the involvement of RhoGTPase signaling in establishment of cell polarity and gene regulation and implied that the expression of many PDGF-BB induced genes can be affected by RHoGTPases signaling.
Localization of the PAK1-, WASP-, and IQGAP1-specifying Regions of Cdc42*
TLDR
Cdc42 utilizes multiple distinct structural determinants to specify different effector recognition and to elicit PAM-inducing effect, suggesting that switch I provides essential determinants for the effector binding, but recognition of each effector by Cdc42 involves a distinct mechanism.
Rac and Cdc42 effectors.
TLDR
The different Rac and Cdc42 specific effectors and the current understanding of their physiological roles are the major focus of this chapter.
RICH, a Rho GTPase-activating Protein Domain-containing Protein Involved in Signaling by Cdc42 and Rac1*
TLDR
Ectopic expression of the RhoGAP domain as well as the full-length protein interfered with platelet-derived growth factor BB-induced membrane ruffling, but not with serum-induced stress fiber formation, further emphasizing the notion that, in vivo, RICH-1 is a GAP for Cdc42 and Rac1.
Novel monoclonal antibodies for the investigation of PCH family proteins
TLDR
A set of monoclonal antibodies against three individual PCH family members will help to analyze the presence and function of endogenous PCH proteins in lymphocytes and other cell types.

A non-receptor tyrosine kinase that inhibits the GTPase activity of p21cdc42
TLDR
The findings indicate that there may be a regulatory mechanism that sustains the GTP-bound active form of Cdc42Hs and which is directly linked to a tyrosine phosphorylation pathway.
A Conserved Binding Motif Defines Numerous Candidate Target Proteins for Both Cdc42 and Rac GTPases (*)
TLDR
Results indicate that proteins containing the CRIB motif bind to Cdc42 and/or Rac in a GTP-dependent manner, and they may, therefore, participate in downstream signaling.
An X chromosome-linked gene encoding a protein with characteristics of a rhoGAP predominantly expressed in hematopoietic cells.
TLDR
A novel gene, C1, encodes a protein that appears to represent a newly discovered member of the group of signaling proteins involved in regulation of the small GTP binding proteins of the ras superfamily, characterized by two regions of similarity to motifs present in known proteins: GAP and SH3 homologous regions.
The Dbl family of oncogenes.
Identification of a novel human Rho protein with unusual properties: GTPase deficiency and in vivo farnesylation.
TLDR
It is found that RhoE in farnesylated in vivo and that this modification is required for association with the plasma membrane and with an unidentified cellular structure that may play a role in adhesion, suggesting a striking evolutionary divergence from the Rho family of GTPases.
