Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
Specificity :Recognizes the PAK1 protein
Cited Applications :WB
Cross Reactivity :Western blot PAK1 from human and mouse cells
PAK1 from other species may also be detectable
Immunogen :Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 210-214 of human PAK1

Sample Data :Representative western blot with Anti-PAK1 (1:1000) using 3 μg, 10 μg, and 30 μg of Jurkat cel lysate.
Scientific Background :PAK1 is a member of the p21-activated kinases (PAKs) which have been implicated in the regulation of cell morphology, motility and transformation. These serine/threonine kinases are activated by and are effectors of small GTPases, CDC42 and RAC. PAK1 belongs to the Group I PAKs which also includes PAK2 and PAK3 (1). PAK1 is a key regulator of the actin cytoskeleton, adhesion and cell motility. Inactive dimeric PAK1 is mainly cytosolic and interaction with the activators Cdc42-GTP and Rac1-GTP stimulates the kinase at the sites of cellular protrusions forming adhesions to the extracellular matrix (2).
