Abstract: The actin cytoskeleton is crucial in maintaining cell morphology and mediating cell motility in eukaryotic cells. The organization of the actin architecture is regulated by a number of actin binding proteins and signaling molecules. Among them, the Rho family of small GTPases and their effector proteins play important roles in modulating the actin cytoskeleton. More than twenty members of the RHO proteins have been reported but RhoA, CDC42 and RAC1 remain the most well studied. Many of the Rho effector proteins are kinases. Hence the balance of phosphorylation activities is also implicated in the maintenance of the actin structures.
