Abstract: We demonstrate here that growth hormone (GH) stimulates the activation of Rap1 and Rap2 in NIH-3T3 cells. Full activation of Rap1 and Rap2 by GH necessitated the combined activity of both JAK2 and c-Src kinases, although c-Src was predominantly required. GH-stimulated Rap1 and Rap2 activity was also demonstrated to be CrkII-C3G-dependent. GH stimulated the tyrosine phosphorylation of C3G, which again required the combined activity of JAK2 and c-Src. C3G tyrosine residue 504 was required for GH-stimulated Rap …
