The Mon1-Ccz1 GEF activates the Rab7 GTPase Ypt7 via a longin-fold-Rab interface and association with PI3P-positive membranes.
To function in fusion and signaling, Rab GTPases need to be converted into their active GTP form. We previously identified the conserved Mon1-Ccz1 complex as the guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) of the yeast Rab7 GTPase Ypt7. To address the possible GEF mechanism, we generated a homology model of the predicted longin domains of Mon1 and Ccz1 using the Rab-binding surface of the TRAPP complex as a template. On the basis of this, we identified mutations in both yeast Mon1 and Ccz1 that ...Expand abstract
