Overview

  • Product name
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to PAK1
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: IP, WBmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Human
  • Immunogen

    E.coli expressed human PAK 1 (amino acids 333-545).

  • General notes


    Human p21-GTPase-activated Protein Kinase 1 (PAK 1) is a functional homolog of STE20 of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. PAK1 is a downstream effector of the Rho-family small GTPases Rac and Cdc42. A serine/threonine kinase, PAK 1 induces the formation of filopodia and lamellipodia in Swiss 3T3 cells. PAK 1 inhibits myosin light chain kinase, and appears to play a role in the regulation of apoptosis by phosphorylating the death agonist Bad. Membrane targeting of PAK 1 induces neurite outgrowth. PAK 1 may also regulate NFkappaB activation.

WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 80 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 61 kDa).

Target

  • Function
    The activated kinase acts on a variety of targets. Likely to be the GTPase effector that links the Rho-related GTPases to the JNK MAP kinase pathway. Activated by CDC42 and RAC1. Involved in dissolution of stress fibers and reorganization of focal complexes. Involved in regulation of microtubule biogenesis through phosphorylation of TBCB. Activity is inhibited in cells undergoing apoptosis, potentially due to binding of CDC2L1 and CDC2L2.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family. STE20 subfamily.
    Contains 1 CRIB domain.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Autophosphorylated when activated by CDC42/p21 and RAC1.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Cell junction > focal adhesion. Recruited to focal adhesions upon activation.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for your enquiry. The immunogen has 96% homology with PAK2 and PAK3. Thus, it's likely the antibody will cross react with PAK2 & PAK3. I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.
