. Regulation of dendritic spine morphogenesis by insulin receptor substrate 53, a downstream effector of Rac1 and Cdc42 small GTPases. J Neurosci. 2005;25:869-79 pubmed
..These results suggest that PSD-95 interaction is an important determinant of synaptic IRSp53 localization and that the SH3 domain of IRSp53 links activated Rac1/Cdc42 to downstream effectors for the regulation of spine morphogenesis. ..
Lee Y, Kim G, Kim I, Park J, Kwak S, Choi G, et al
. LONGIFOLIA1 and LONGIFOLIA2, two homologous genes, regulate longitudinal cell elongation in Arabidopsis. Development. 2006;133:4305-14 pubmed
..Taken together, these findings indicate that LNG1 and LNG2 are new components that regulate leaf morphology by positively promoting longitudinal polar cell elongation independently of ROT3 in Arabidopsis. ..
Song Y, Cheon S, Lee K, Lee S, Lee B, Oh D, et al
. Role of the RAM network in cell polarity and hyphal morphogenesis in Candida albicans. Mol Biol Cell. 2008;19:5456-77 pubmed publisher
..Collectively, these results demonstrate that the RAM network is critically required for hyphal growth as well as normal vegetative growth in C. albicans. ..

. Preso, a novel PSD-95-interacting FERM and PDZ domain protein that regulates dendritic spine morphogenesis. J Neurosci. 2008;28:14546-56 pubmed publisher
..These results suggest that Preso positively regulates spine density through its interaction with the synaptic plasma membrane, actin filaments, PSD-95, and the betaPix-based Rac1 signaling pathway. ..
