Switch #:
Switch type:
Switch subtype:

Binding of Cell division control protein 42 homolog (CDC42) to Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WAS) allosterically relieves an auto-inhibitory intramolecular interaction in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WAS), which becomes active.

(1) Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WAS)

Interaction #1 WAS - WAS(intramolecular)
(1) ELM:LIG_GBD_WASP_1 motif (466LVGALMHVMQK476) in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WAS)
(2) P21-Rho-binding domain (237-296) in Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WAS)

Interaction Regulation
Effector binding Inhibition (Cell division control protein 42 homolog (CDC42)) of the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WAS) LIG_GBD_WASP_1 motif - Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WAS) P21-Rho-binding domain interaction
