RhoA, a member of the Rho family of small GTPases, directs the organization of the actin cytoskeleton and is involved in regulating cell shape and movement. Its activity is negatively regulated by p190-B RhoGAP (GTPase-activating protein). We investigated DNA copy number aberrations in human hepatocellular carcinoma and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma cell lines using a high-density oligonucleotide microarray and found a novel amplification at chromosomal region 14q12. We identified ARHGAP5 (the gene encoding p190-B RhoGAP) as a probable target for the amplification at 14q12, and our results showed that p190-B RhoGAP promotes cells spreading and migration by negatively regulating RhoA activity in Huh-7 hepatocellular carcinoma cells.
