The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
The C terminal deletion of 13 amino acids of CDC42 delta C includes the polybasic domain consisting of six contiguous basic amino acids. The polybasic domain of CDC42 is required for homodimer formation. The Gly12 to Val mutation of CDC42 delta C leads to a constitutively active protein.

Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped on dry ice. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -80ºC. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.
FunctionPlasma 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.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the small GTPase superfamily. Rho family. CDC42 subfamily.
Post-translational modificationsAMPylation at Tyr-32 and Thr-35 are mediated by bacterial enzymes in case of infection by H.somnus and V.parahaemolyticus, respectively. AMPylation occurs in the effector region and leads to inactivation of the GTPase activity by preventing the interaction with downstream effectors, thereby inhibiting actin assembly in infected cells. It is unclear whether some human enzyme mediates AMPylation; FICD has such ability in vitro but additional experiments remain to be done to confirm results in vivo.
