Figure Legend Snippet: Domain organization, phylogeny, substrate specificity and subcellular localization of ARHGAP42. (A) Domain organization of ARHGAP42 in comparison to the three other mammalian members of the BAR-PH RhoGAP family. For ARHGAP42, the position of the major site of Src-mediated phosphorylation, Tyr-376, is indicated. OPHN1, oligophrenin-1. (B) Phylogram showing evolutionary relationships among the mammalian BAR-PH RhoGAP family members and to more distant relatives predicted from C. elegans (Ce T04C9.1A) and Drosophila (Dm Graf) genomes. The phylogram was generated using Multalin software (Corpet, 1988). (C) ARHGAP42 is a GAP for RhoA and Cdc42, but not Rac1. The GAP domain of ARHGAP42 was bacterially expressed, recovered as a GST fusion protein, and assessed for its activity toward the Rho GTPases RhoA, Rac1 and Cdc42 by measuring the amount of phosphate released by GTP hydrolysis using an in vitro assay. Ras was included as a negative control. Values are mean±s.d. from triplicate assays. (D,E) MEFs were transfected with GFP-ARHGAP42 expression plasmid and viewed 24 h later by fluorescence microscopy of fixed cells. The cells were either immunostained with an antibody against paxillin to mark focal adhesions (D, red) or with phalloidin to mark F-actin (E, red). In the representative cell shown in D, GFP-ARHGAP42 is most prominently localized at the focal adhesions and actin stress fibers. In the representative cell shown in E, GFP-ARHGAP42 is more prominently observed in association with actin stress fibers, as well as in apparent focal adhesions. Scale bar: 30 μm.

Figure Legend Snippet: Src promotes phosphorylation of ARHGAP42 Tyr-376. (A,B) Immunoblot analysis of GFP-ARHGAP42 phosphorylation. GFP-ARHGAP42 variants were transiently expressed in (A) COS-7 cells or (B) MEFs, either with or without constitutively active Src-F529, and ARHGAP42 tyrosine phosphorylation was assessed by immunoprecipitation (IP) with anti-GFP antibody followed by immunoblotting (IB) with general anti-pTyr (pTyr) or anti-pTyr376 (pY376) antibody. (B) Prior to immunoprecipitation in MEFs, Src activity was further manipulated by incubating the cells for 2 h in the presence or absence of 5 µM saracatinib. Src-F529 expression was confirmed by immunoblot analysis of total cell lysates with antibody against the Src autophosphorylation site (pSrc). (C) In vitro kinase assay. GFP-ARHGAP42 variants were individually expressed in MEFs and immunoprecipitated using anti-GFP antibody, eluted, and incubated with immunoprecipitated Src-F529. After the kinase reaction had been carried out for 1.5 h, levels of GFP-ARHGAP42 phosphorylation were assessed using a pY376 antibody. The numbers on the right indicate the positions of molecular size markers (kDa).
Techniques Used: Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation, Activity Assay, Expressing, In Vitro, Kinase Assay, Incubation
Figure Legend Snippet: ARHGAP42 with deleted BAR domain has enhanced RhoGAP activity. (A) MEFs were transfected with plasmids expressing GFP-ARHGAP42 variants WT, ΔBAR or ΔGAP, and 24 h later the cell lysates were analyzed by immunoblotting with an antibody raised against mouse ARHGAP42. The ARHGAP42 antibody detects the GFP-tagged variants as well as an additional band of expected size for the endogenous protein. Actin was detected as an additional loading control (bottom panel). The numbers indicate the positions of molecular size markers (kDa). (B) Example of a highly arborized MEF cell expressing GFP-ARHGAP42-ΔBAR. 24 h after transfection, the cell was fixed and visualized for GFP fluorescence. Scale bar: 30 µm. (C) Quantification of arborized morphology in MEFs expressing GFP-ARHGAP42 variants. Values are mean±s.d. from four independent transfections, with 500 fluorescent cells scored per transfection. (D) Deletion of the BAR domain significantly enhances the RhoGAP activity of ARHGAP42. Lysates from MEFs stably expressing ARHGAP42 variants were analyzed using a G-LISA assay to detect GTP-bound RhoA. Values are mean±s.d. RhoGTP signal compared to the signal from ARHGAP42-WT cells from three independent experiments. P-values indicate statistical significance determined by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey's multiple comparisons test.

(C) FRAP analysis of mCherry-vinculin dynamics in focal adhesions, showing mean recovery halftimes. (A-C) The numbers in the histogram bars indicate the number of focal adhesions analyzed. (D) MEFs stably expressing GFP-ARHGAP42 variants (WT, ΔBAR, ΔGAP) were allowed to migrate for 24 h on a Petri dish and the healed area was subsequently determined by light microscopy followed by analysis using ImageJ software. Values are mean±s.d. Statistical significance was determined by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey's post-hoc test.
