Synthetic phospho peptide (Human) containing serine 71. The sequence is conserved in human and mouse RAC 1, 2, and 3, and Cdc 42 human, mouse, rat, dog and frog.
RAC, Cdc 42 and Rho A, B, and C are members of a small RhoGTPase family that bind and hydrolyze GTP. GTP bound RAC 1 and cdc 42 play a pivotal role in controlling cell shape, adhesion, growth and transformation. Active Rac 1 is implicated in regulating serum response element (SRE), NFAT 1 and nuclear factor kappa B (NF kappa B) transcription activities. Activated RAC 1 and Cdc 42 bind and activate PAK 1, which in turn activates key downstream signaling proteins including MEKK 1 and JNK. RAC 1 and Cdc 42 are phosphorylated on serine 71, a putative Akt site located between the protein binding domain and GTP binding domain. Phosphorylation of RAC 1 on serine 71 regulates its GTP binding and GTPase activity.
