Cloning and characterization of rac-like cDNAs from Arabidopsis thaliana

Cloning and characterization of rac-like cDNAs from Arabidopsis thaliana The Rho family of GTPases are in higher eukaryotes divided into 3 major subfamilies; the Rho, Rac and Cdc42 proteins. In plants, however, the Rho family is restricted to one large family of Rac-like proteins. From work with mammalian phagocytes the Rac proteins are known to activate a multicomponent NADPH-dependent oxidase which results in accumulation of H2O2, a process termed oxidative burst. In plants a similar oxidative burst is observed and plays an important role in its defence against pathogen infections, suggesting a similar role for the plant Rac-like proteins. The Rho family of GTPases proteins are also involved in control of cell morphology, and are also thought to mediate signals from cell membrane receptors. Plant Molecular Biology Springer Journals
