Background Information

PAK2, also named as PAK65, PAKgamma, p58, PAK-2p27, PAK-2p24 and C-t-PAK2, belongs to the protein kinase superfamily, STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family and STE20 subfamily. Full length PAK 2 stimulates cell survival and cell growth. The process is, at least in part, mediated by phosphorylation and inhibition of pro-apoptotic BAD. PAK2 has several isoforms with the MW of 54-62 kDa and 41 kDa. The 62 kDa PAK2 is cleaved into a 34 kDa C terminal fragment and a 28 kDa N terminal fragment with a time course that parallels apoptotic death in Jurkat cells. (PMID:10200518). Caspase-activated PAK-2p34 is involved in cell death response, probably involving the JNK signaling pathway. Cleaved PAK-2p34 seems to have a higher activity than the CDC42-activated form. The antibody has no cross reaction to PAK1 and PAK3.
