Forkhead box Os (FOXOs) transcription factors favor both T cell quiescence and trafficking through their control of the expression of genes involved in cell cycle progression, adhesion and homing. Here, we report that the product of the fam65b gene is a new transcriptional target of FOXO1 that regulates RhoA activity. We show that Fam65b binds the small GTPase RhoA via a non canonical domain and represses its activity by decreasing its GTP loading. As a consequence, Fam65b negatively regulates chemokine-induced responses such as adhesion, morphological polarisation and migration. Therefore, these results show the existence of a new functional link between FOXO1 and RhoA pathways, through which the FOXO1 target Fam65b tonically dampens chemokine-induced migration by repressing RhoA activity.

Abstract

Forkhead box Os (FOXOs) transcription factors favor both T cell quiescence and trafficking through their control of the expression of genes involved in cell cycle progression, adhesion and homing. Here, we report that the product of the fam65b gene is a new transcriptional target of FOXO1 that regulates RhoA activity. We show that Fam65b binds the small GTPase RhoA via a non canonical domain and represses its activity by decreasing its GTP loading. As a consequence, Fam65b negatively regulates chemokine-induced responses such as adhesion, morphological polarisation and migration. Therefore, these results show the existence of a new functional link between FOXO1 and RhoA pathways, through which the FOXO1 target Fam65b tonically dampens chemokine-induced migration by repressing RhoA activity.
