Technical Data
Paxillin (PXN)
Paxillin is a protein with 4 LIM domains, a proline-rich domain containing consensus SH3-binding site, and 3 potential SH2-binding sites. It acts as an ERK-regulated scaffold that coordinates FAK and Rac activation in epithelial morphogenesis. Paxillin is a novel vinculin-binding protein present in focal adhesions and its isoforms in monocyte and cancer cells are known to have different binding properties to focal adhesion proteins. Paxillin binds to schwannomin and regulates its density-dependent localization and effect on cell morphology. Phosphorylation of Paxillin by JNK is known to regulate cell migration. The human Paxillin gene is localized in the chromosomal region 12q24.31.
