Sample text

Examination of the remaining poorly characterised human Rho GTPases shows that most of these are chordate-specific. Ciona is the first organism in which the Rif GTPase is present. Fugu contains a number of other human Rho GTPase orthologues that are absent from Ciona. The three Rnd GTPases are all present, as are TTF, a second Miro and the intronless RhoG GTPase. It has been suggested that RhoG is the human counterpart of the C. elegans Mig-2 and Drosophila Mtl GTPases; however, this is not supported by the sequence data.

Cerevisisiae and S. pombe have both lost their Rac gene at some point. Joining these three wellcharacterised Rho GTPases is another elderly family member – the recently identified Miro proteins. , 2003). Finally, the RhoBTB GTPases are also worth comment for their relative age and unusual structure. , 2001). These proteins are also present in Drosophila and humans, and have an extended C-terminus containing two copies of the BTB/POZ motif – a domain involved in mediating protein-protein interaction.
