Background: VopS is a bacterial effector that AMPylates Rho GTPases.

Results: AMPylation of Rho GTPases inhibits their interaction with multiple downstream effectors.

Conclusion: VopS conducts a multifaceted host signaling inhibition program by targeting the critical Rho GTPases.

Significance: Broadens the understanding of how switch-1 modification of Rho GTPases affects host responses.
