Rho-GTPase stabilizes microtubules that are oriented towards the leading edge in serum-starved 3T3 fibroblasts through an unknown mechanism. We used a Rho-effector domain screen to identify mDia as a downstream Rho effector involved in microtubule stabilization. Constitutively active mDia or activation of endogenous mDia with the mDia-autoinhibitory domain stimulated the formation of stable microtubules that were capped and oriented towards the wound edge. mDia co-localized with stable… Expand
Localized Stabilization of Microtubules by Integrin- and FAK-Facilitated Rho Signaling
TLDR
It is reported that integrin-mediated activation of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) at the leading edge is required for MT stabilization by the Rho-mDia signaling pathway in mouse fibroblasts. Expand
A New Look at Rho GTPases in Cell Cycle Role in Kinetochore-Microtubule Attachment
TLDR
How Cdc42 and its downstream effector mDia3 are involved in bi-orientation and stabilization of spindle microtubules attachment to kinetochores and regulate chromosome alignment and segregation is discussed. Expand
A New Look at Rho GTPases in the Cell Cycle: Their Role in Kinetochore-Microtubule Attachment
TLDR
How Cdc42 and its downstream effector mDia3 are involved in bi-orientation and stabilization of spindle microtubules attachment to kinetochores and regulate chromosome alignment and segregation is discussed. Expand
The formin homology protein mDia 1 regulates dynamics of microtubules and their effect on focal adhesion growth
The formin homology protein, mDia1, is a major effector of Rho controlling, together with the Rho-kinase (ROCK), the formation of focal adhesions and stress fibers. Here we show that a constitutivelyExpand

TLDR
It is suggested that the formin mDia3 could contribute to the regulation of kinetochore-bound microtubules dynamics, in coordination with attachment via its own microtubule-binding activity, as well as via its interaction with the tip-tracker EB1 (end-binding protein 1). Expand
Rho GTPases in animal cell mitosis.
TLDR
The role of Rho GTPases in animal cell division, once thought to be limited to cytokinesis, has now been shown to extend to mitosis, and recent work indicates that they may function during both spindle orientation and chromosome congression. Expand
Dynamics in Migrating Cells: a new role for Rho GTPases
Rho GTPases, most notably RhoA, Rac1 and Cdc42Hs, were described as major regulators of actin organization over 10 years ago, and thus have received extensive attention as regulators of cellExpand
Regulation of microtubule dynamics in 3T3 fibroblasts by Rho family GTPases.
TLDR
It is concluded that Cdc42 and Rac1 have similar stimulating effects on microtubule dynamics while RhoA acts in an opposite way. Expand
A novel p21-activated kinase binds the actin and microtubule networks and induces microtubule stabilization
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a novel Cdc42/Rac effector, X-p21-activated kinase (PAK)5, colocalizes and binds to both the actin and MT networks and that its subcellular localization is regulated during cell cycle progression. Expand
Cortical control of microtubule stability and polarization.
In both dividing and interphase cells, microtubules are remodeled in response to signal transduction pathways triggered by a variety of stimuli. Members of the Rho family of small GTPases haveExpand

Coordination of microtubules and the actin cytoskeleton by the Rho effector mDia1
TLDR
Results indicate that mDia1 may coordinate microtubules and F-actin through its FH2 and FH1 regions, respectively. Expand
Cooperation between mDia1 and ROCK in Rho-induced actin reorganization
TLDR
It is shown that GTP-bound Rho activates its effector mDia1 by disrupting mDIA1’s intramolecular interactions, which may induce the formation of different actin structures affected by the balance between mDía1 and ROCK signalling. Expand
RhoA-Binding Kinase α Translocation Is Facilitated by the Collapse of the Vimentin Intermediate Filament Network
TLDR
It is shown that Rho effectors known to act on microfilaments may be involved in regulating the assembly of IFs and the translocation of ROKα from IFs to the cell periphery upon overexpression of RhoAV14 or growth factor treatment is associated with disassembly of vimentin IFs. Expand

Positioning of the mitotic spindle by a cortical-microtubule capture mechanism.
TLDR
Genetic, biochemical, and imaging experiments suggest a mechanism for cortical-microtubule capture in mitotic spindle positioning, and Bim1p, located at microtubule distal ends, bound Kar9p, a protein associated with the daughter cell cortex. Expand

Glu microtubules are stabilized by a plus-end cap that includes an ATPase with properties similar to kinesins, and were resistant to dilution-induced breakdown. Expand

The results show that the DRF proteins couple Rho and Src during signaling and the regulation of actin dynamics, which is required for cytokinesis, stress fiber formation, and transcriptional activation of the serum response factor. Expand

The Rac1-tubulin interaction may play a role in Rac1 function and two 55-kDa brain proteins are identified which bind Rac1 but not RhoA or Cdc42Hs. Expand

A kinesin-based mechanism for the preferential interaction of vimentin with detyrosinated microtubules is demonstrated and specifically associates with vimentsin without accessory molecules. Expand

TLDR
A substantial population of quasi-stable microtubules is observed that does not exchange subunits as rapidly as the majority ofmicrotubules and may have specialized functions in the cell. Expand
