ⓘ PARD3

PARD proteins, which were first identified in C. elegans, are essential for asymmetric cell division and polarized growth, whereas CDC42 MIM 116952 mediates the establishment of cell polarity. The CDC42 GTPase, which is controlled by nucleotide exchange factors GEFs, see MIM 606057 and GTPase-activating proteins GAPs, see MIM 604980, interacts with a large set of effector proteins that typically contain a CDC42/RAC MIM 602048-interactive binding CRIB domain.
