Cdc42., Cdc42 is implicated in the CFTR biosynthesis and processing, maintaining the level of Cdc42 and its effectors in cells, tumor progression can be controlled., Study shows that activation of CDC42 in HeLa cells causes increased radiosensitivity, cells arrest in G2/M and reduced survival. These results complete the understanding of the signaling roles of CDC42 in maintaining genomic stability and integrity., COPI tubular transport complements cisternal maturation in explaining how anterograde Golgi transport is achieved, and that bidirectional COPI transport is modulated by environmental cues through CDC42., This study showed that cdc42 messenger RNA levels were significantly downregulated specifically in deep layer 3 pyramidal cells in patient with schizophrenia., In marked contrast to invadopodia, this degradation does not require the action of Src kinase, Cdc42 or Dyn2. Rather, inhibition of Dyn2 causes a marked upregulation of stromal matrix degradation, Rich1 negatively regulates the epithelial cell cycle, proliferation and adhesion by CDC42/RAC1-PAK1-Erk1/2 pathway., Robo1 promoted cell division cycle 42 (Cdc42) expression in HUVECs, and a distorted actin cytoskeleton in HUVECs was observed when Robo1 expression was suppressed. In conclusion, Robo1 promoted angiogenesis in HCC mediated by Cdc42., IQGAP1 and its two isoforms regulate the actin-cytoskeleton alone and with their binding partners, Rac and Cdc42, thereby controlling diverse cellular processes, such as cell migration and adhesion. (Review), The structural details of the cdc42 protein have been described that determine its recognition by the bacterial c3 exoenzyme., PAK4 binding to cell-cell junctions is dependent on Cdc42., Ketorolac has a novel pharmacologic activity conferred by the R-enantiomer and R-ketorolac achieves sufficient levels in the peritoneal cavity to inhibit Rac1 and Cdc42, contributing to the observed survival benefit in women who received ketorolac, FMNL3 interacts with Cdc42 and RhoJ, two Rho family GTPases known to be required for lumen formation. FMNL3 and RhoJ are concentrated at the early apical surface, or AMIS, and regulate the formation of radiating actin cables from this site., Results suggest that the role of polypyrimidine tract binding protein 1 (PTBP1) in tumorigenesis may be partly mediated by its regulation of cdc42 GTP-binding protein (CDC42) alternative splicing and CDC42-v2 might function as a tumor suppressor., CDC42 independently regulated the antitumor effects of miR-137 in human hepatocellular carcinoma., Authors conclude that a transient interaction between Cdc42 and GRAF1 drives endocytic turnover and controls the transition essential for endosomal maturation of plasma membrane internalised by this mechanism., MARCKS upregulation increases vascular smooth muscle cell motility by activation of Rac1 and Cdc42, promoting neointima formation., Results show that the activation of cdc42 GTP-binding protein (Cdc42) is a process of conformational changes., CDC42 is a key regulator involved in regulating the proliferation, migration and invasion of gastric cancer., Data indicate enantiomer selective interaction of R-naproxen and R-ketorolac with Rho family GTPases Rac1 and Cdc42., we discovered distinct predictive performance of Rac1 and Cdc42 depending on the migration modes, indicating that Rac1 and Cdc42 contribute to persistent and random migration, respectively, Chemotactic steering and de novo polarization are both directed by locally excitable Cdc42 signals in neutrophils., Data suggest LPA (lysophosphatidic acid; acting via LPAR1) and endothelin activate Cdc42, concurrent with biphasic decrease in Rac1 activity, differential effects on RhoA; LPA/endothelin stim. leads to remodeling of invadosomes in melanoma cells., Shp2 also mediates Cdc42 repression, and HDAC6 inhibition or co-suppression of ERK/myosin II promotes normal epithelial lumen phenotype without increasing Cdc42 activity., Loss of FAT1 results in decreased cell adhesion and migration in fibroblasts and podocytes and the decreased migration is partially reversed by a RAC1/CDC42 activator., miR-1 bound both MALAT1 and cdc42 3'UTR directly. Further study showed that MALAT1 induced migration and invasion of breast cancer cells while reduced the level of cdc42.,
OMIM_DISEASE Takenouchi-Kosaki syndrome,
SP_COMMENT enzyme regulation:Regulated by guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) which promote the exchange of bound GDP for free GTP, GTPase activating proteins (GAPs) which increase the GTP hydrolysis activity, and GDP dissociation inhibitors which inhibit the dissociation of the nucleotide from the GTPase., function:Plasma membrane-associated small GTPase which cycles between an active GTP-bound and an inactive GDP-bound state. In active state binds to a variety of effector proteins to regulate cellular responses. Involved in epithelial cell polarization processes. Causes the formation of thin, actin-rich surface projections called filopodia., similarity:Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Rho family., similarity:Belongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Rho family. CDC42 subfamily., subunit:The GTP-bound form interacts with CCPG1 (By similarity). Interacts with CDC42EP1, CDC42EP2, CDC42EP3, CDC42EP4, CDC42EP5, CDC42SE1, CDC42SE2, PARD6A, PARD6B and PARD6G (in a GTP-dependent manner). Interacts with activated CSPG4 and with BAIAP2. Interacts with Zizimin1/DOCK9 and Zizimin2/DOCK11, which activate it by exchanging GDP for GTP. Interacts with NET1 and TCGAP/SNX26. Part of a complex with PARD3, PARD6A or PARD6B and PRKCI or PRKCZ.,
