CDC42 is involved in the formation of filopodia with potential functions in guidance and migration in response to a VEGF gradient. CDC42 is activated downstream of VEGFR2 and involved in the formation of stress fibres by contributing to the activation of the p38 pathway. The activation of CDC42 may rely on FYN activity but the precise mechanism that leads to activation is not known (Lamalice et al. 2004, 2006).
