Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B IP IF
FAK (Focal Adhesion Associated Protein-Tyrosine Kinase) is a widely expressed non receptor protein tyrosine kinase (PTK). FAK has a central catalytic domain and a C terminal tail that localizes it to focal adhesions, which are sites where cells attach to the extracellular matrix via surface integrin receptors. Increased FAK tyrosine phosphorylation occurs upon integrin engagement with fibronectin. Adhesion of murine NIH3T3 fibroblasts to fibronectin promotes association of the Grb 2 adapter protein and c Src PTK with FAK in vivo, and also results in activation of the ERK 2 MAP kinase. In v-Src-transformed NIH3T3, the association of v-Src, Grb 2, and Sos with FAK is independent of cell adhesion to fibronectin. In vitro the Grb 2 SH2 domain binds directly to tyrosine phosphorylated FAK, and the binding site has been identified as Tyr 925 by site directed mutagenesis.
