    FEBS Lett 582:2093-101. 2008
    ..Here, we discuss how Rho GTPases could contribute to different steps of cancer progression, including proliferation, survival, invasion and metastasis...

    Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King s College London, New Hunt s House, Guy s Campus, London SE1 1UL, UK
    Open Biol 2:120076. 2012
    ..We propose that RhoB contributes to directional cell migration by regulating β1 integrin surface levels and activity, thereby stabilizing lamellipodial protrusions...

    Nicolas Reymond
    Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King s College London, London SE1 1UL, England, UK
    J Cell Biol 199:653-68. 2012
    ..By identifying β1 integrin as a transcriptional target of Cdc42, our results provide new insight into Cdc42 function...

    J Cell Biol 193:655-65. 2011
    ..We propose that RhoA contributes to migratory cell polarity through ROCK2-mediated suppression of Rac1 activity in lamellipodia, whereas RhoC promotes polarized migration through FMNL3 by restricting lamellipodial broadening...
