The p21-activated protein kinases (PAKs) have been implicated in cytoskeletal rearrangements and modulation of non-muscle contractility. Little, however, is known about the role of the PAK family members in smooth muscle contraction. Therefore, we investigated the effect of the predominant isoform in vascular smooth muscle cells, PAK1, on contraction and(More)
Results from electrochemical studies, in situ STM, and ex situ angle-resolved XPS on self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of thiazole on Au(111) are reported for the first time. Although STM seems to indicate a low density of molecules organized in small ordered domains, a quantitative chemical analysis of the sample surface by XPS clearly points toward the(More)
