Technical Data
FAK phosphorylated (Tyr407) (Focal Adhesion Associated Protein Tyrosine Kinase 1)
Focal Adhesion Kinase (FAK) is a 125kD non-receptor protein tyrosine kinase that was discovered as a substrate for Src and is a key element of integrin signaling. FAK plays a central role in cell spreading, differentiation, migration, cell death and acceleration of the G1 to S phase transition of the cell cycle. Phosphorylation of tyrosine 407 is activated by TGFb and Epithelial Mesenchyme Transition (EMT). Unlike other sites on FAK, tyrosine 407 is EGFR independent.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: A 1:1000 detected FAK phosphorylated on residue Tyr407 in lysate from FAK transfected CEF cells grown on fibronectin.
Optimal dilution to be determined by researcher.
