Essential role of the NH2-terminal region of Cdc24 guanine nucleotide exchange factor in its initial polarized localization in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.


The cortical recruitment and accumulation of the small GTPase Cdc42 are crucial steps in the establishment of polarity, but this process remains obscure. Cdc24 is an upstream regulator of budding yeast Cdc42 that accelerates the exchange of GDP for GTP in Cdc42 via its Dbl homology (DH) domain. Here, we isolated five novel temperature-sensitive (ts) cdc24… (More)
