Citron kinase CIT was identified as a RHO GTPase effector in a yeast two hybrid screen, where it was shown, using mouse proteins, that CIT strongly binds GTP-bound RHOA, RHOB, RHOC and RAC1, but not CDC42. CIT possesses a centrally located Rho/Rac binding domain, while the kinase domain is located at the N-terminus. CIT is likely a homodimer that is activated by a conformational change upon RHO/RAC1 binding (Madaule et al. 1995).
