p21 Ras has been implicated in vulval differentiation in Caenorhabditis elegans. We now describe the characteristics during nematode development of the related p21 RhoA which has been ascribed a morphological role in mammals. The CeRhoA cDNA isolated in this study encodes a sequence of 192 amino acids residues with 87.6% identity to human RhoA. Genomic Southern analysis indicates the presence of a single Rho gene in C. elegans. Its 2-kilobase mRNA is expressed at the highest levels during… CONTINUE READING
