    ..These findings suggest that P-Rex1, which is expressed in a variety of cell types, is activated by extracellular cues such as neurotrophins and contributes to neuronal migration in the developing nervous system. ..

    ..P-Rex1 appears to be a coincidence detector in PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 and Gbetagamma signaling pathways that is particularly adapted to function downstream of heterotrimeric G proteins in neutrophils. ..

    ..Thus, by functioning as a coincidence detector of chemotactic signals from both GPCRs and RTKs, P-Rex1-dependent activation of Rac promotes prostate cancer metastasis. ..

    ..We conclude that P-Rex1 and Vav1 together are the major fMLFR-dependent Dbl family Rac-GEFs in neutrophils and cooperate in the control of fMLF-stimulated neutrophil responses. ..

    ..This study has identified P-Rex1 as a Rac3-GEF in neuronal cells that localises to, and regulates, actin cytoskeletal dynamics at the axonal growth cone to in turn regulate neurite differentiation. ..
