In one aspect, the present invention concerns RhoB variant polypeptides and isolated degenerate polynucleotides encoding the RhoB variant polypeptides. In another aspect, the present invention concerns nucleic acid constructs containing a polynucleotide encoding a RhoB variant polypeptide, and host cells genetically modified to express such polynucleotides. In another aspect, the present invention provides a method of inhibiting the growth of, and inducing apoptosis in, cancerous cells by contacting the cells with an effective amount of a RhoB variant.
