GEFT, A Rho Family Guanine Nucleotide Exchange Factor, Regulates Neurite Outgrowth and Dendritic Spine Formation*
TLDR
The data suggest that GEFT enhances dendritic spine formation and neurite outgrowth in primary neurons and neuroblastoma cells, respectively, through the activation of Rac/Cdc42-PAK signaling pathways.
Kidins220/ARMS regulates Rac1-dependent neurite outgrowth by direct interaction with the RhoGEF Trio
TLDR
The data indicate that Kidins220 might localise Trio to specific membrane sites and regulate its activity, leading to Rac1 activation and neurite outgrowth.
Tyrosine Phosphorylation of the Rho Guanine Nucleotide Exchange Factor Trio Regulates Netrin-1/DCC-Mediated Cortical Axon Outgrowth
TLDR
It is demonstrated that TrioY2622 phosphorylation is essential for the regulation of the DCC/Trio signaling complex in cortical neurons during netrin-1-mediated axon outgrowth.
RhoG activates Rac1 by direct interaction with the Dock180-binding protein Elmo
TLDR
It is shown that RhoG activates Rac1 through Elmo and Dock180 to control cell morphology and interacts directly with Elmo in a GTP-dependent manner and forms a ternary complex with Dock 180 to induce activation of Rac1.
RhoG regulates gene expression and the actin cytoskeleton in lymphocytes
TLDR
Using effector domain mutants of RhoG, it is found that its ability to potentiate NFAT-dependent transcription correlates with its capacity to increase actin polymerization, supporting the suggestion that NFAT -dependent transcription is an actin-dependent process.
Different roles of the small GTPases Rac1, Cdc42, and RhoG in CALEB/NGC‐induced dendritic tree complexity
TLDR
The roles of the small GTPases Rac1, Cdc42, and RhoG in defining dendritic tree complexity stimulated by the transmembrane epidermal growth factor family member CALEB/NGC are investigated.
miR‐124‐regulated RhoG reduces neuronal process complexity via ELMO/Dock180/Rac1 and Cdc42 signalling
TLDR
RhoG emerges as a cellular conductor of Rac1 and Cdc42 activity, in turn regulated by miR‐124 to control axonal and dendritic branching.

TrioGEF1 controls Rac- and Cdc42-dependent cell structures through the direct activation of rhoG.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Trio controls a signaling cascade that activates RhoG, which in turn activates Rac1 and Cdc42Hs, which strongly supports Rac1 not being activated by TrioD1 in vivo.
Small GTPase RhoG Is a Key Regulator for Neurite Outgrowth in PC12 Cells
TLDR
It is suggested that RhoG is a key regulator in NGF-induced neurite outgrowth, acting downstream of Ras and upstream of Rac1 and Cdc42 in PC12 cells.
The two guanine nucleotide exchange factor domains of Trio link the Rac1 and the RhoA pathways in vivo
TLDR
Trio represents a unique member of the Rho-GEFs family possessing two functional domains of distinct specificities, that allow it to link Rho and Rac signaling pathway in vivo.
RhoG GTPase controls a pathway that independently activates Rac1 and Cdc42Hs.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that RhoG controls a pathway that requires the microtubule network and activates Rac1 and Cdc42Hs independently of their growth factor signaling pathways.
Rho family GTPases and neuronal growth cone remodelling: relationship between increased complexity induced by Cdc42Hs, Rac1, and acetylcholine and collapse induced by RhoA and lysophosphatidic acid.
TLDR
There is competition between the ACh- and LPA-induced morphological pathways mediated by Cdc42Hs and/or Rac1 and by RhoA, leading to either neurite development or collapse in N1E-115 neuroblastoma growth cones.
The multidomain protein Trio binds the LAR transmembrane tyrosine phosphatase, contains a protein kinase domain, and has separate rac-specific and rho-specific guanine nucleotide exchange factor domains.
TLDR
As the LAR PTPase localizes to the ends of focal adhesions, it is proposed that LAR and the Trio GEF/PSK may orchestrate cell-matrix and cytoskeletal rearrangements necessary for cell migration.
Kinectin Is a Key Effector of RhoG Microtubule-Dependent Cellular Activity
TLDR
The functional links among RhoG, kinectin, and kinesin are further supported by time-lapse videomicroscopy of COS-7 cells, which showed that the microtubule-dependent lysosomal transport is facilitated by RhoRhoG activation orKinectin overexpression and is severely stemmed upon RHoG inhibition.
