    The RhoGAP activity of CYK-4/MgcRacGAP functions non-canonically by promoting RhoA activation during cytokinesis

    Donglei Zhang, Michael Glotzer
    Activation of the key regulator of cytokinesis, RhoA, involves an unexpected contribution by a RhoGAP domain.

    Rho-associated kinase (ROCK) function is essential for cell cycle progression, senescence and tumorigenesis

    Sandra Kümper et al.
    The Rho kinases ROCK1 and 2 act redundantly in regulating cell proliferation and their depletion causes cellular senescence.

    A putative structural mechanism underlying the antithetic effect of homologous RND1 and RhoD GTPases in mammalian plexin regulation

    Yanyan Liu et al.
    Small Rho GTPases confer up- and downregulation in mammalian plexin signaling by differential interactions with cell membrane.

    Rho1 activation recapitulates early gastrulation events in the ventral, but not dorsal, epithelium of Drosophila embryos

    Ashley Rich et al.
    Spatially and temporally patterned activation of the small GTPase Rho1 indicates that ventral-specific factors contribute to cell- and tissue-level behaviors during ventral furrow formation, the first step in Drosophila gastrulation.

    The adhesion-GPCR BAI1 shapes dendritic arbors via Bcr-mediated RhoA activation causing late growth arrest

    Joseph G Duman et al.
    The adhesion-GPCR BAI1 shapes dendritic arbors in the hippocampus by associating with Bcr late in development and stimulating its RhoA-GEF activity, resulting in dendritic growth arrest.

    Microtubule plus-ends act as physical signaling hubs to activate RhoA during cytokinesis

    Vikash Verma, Thomas J Maresca
    MT plus-end-mediated recruitment of a cortical pool of ECT2 trigger RhoA activation upon contact, which results in localized contractility during cytokinesis.

    An RNAi screen unravels the complexities of Rho GTPase networks in skin morphogenesis

    Melanie Laurin et al.
    An unprecedented large-scale screen in mice for morphogenetic regulators of tissue development provides major new insights into the roles of Rho GTPases in diverse array of skin developmental processes.

    Co-regulation and function of FOXM1/RHNO1 bidirectional genes in cancer

    Carter J Barger et al.
    FOXM1 is co-expressed with its bidirectional gene partner RHNO1, and the two genes promote DNA repair, cell growth and survival, and chemotherapy resistance in ovarian cancer.

    Apical targeting of the formin Diaphanous in Drosophila tubular epithelia

    Tal Rousso et al.
    Synergistic interactions with PI(4,5)P2 and activated Rho1, which are enriched at the apical membrane of tubular organs, facilitate tight apical targeting of the formin Diaphanous.

    A Rho signaling network links microtubules to PKD controlled carrier transport to focal adhesions

    Stephan A Eisler et al.
    The small GTPase Rho connects GPCR signaling with PKD activity at TGN membranes and consequently anterograde trafficking to focal adhesions.
