2). Although the homologous Asn site (Asn 39 ) is conserved within the sequences of Rac 1, Rac2, and Cdc42, evidence to date indicates that these proteins are not efficiently ADP-ribosylated by C3-like exoenzymes [1-3,16, 17]. C3, therefore, functions as a potent and specific probe of Rho function in cells. C3 transferase, however, is relatively cell-impermeant due to the lack of specific cellular binding domains .
