PAK kinases are directly coupled to the PIX family of nucleotide exchange factors.
The PAK family of kinases are regulated through interaction with the small GTPases Cdc42 and Rac1, but little is known of the signaling components immediately upstream or downstream of theseExpand

Myotonic Dystrophy Kinase-Related Cdc42-Binding Kinase Acts as a Cdc42 Effector in Promoting Cytoskeletal Reorganization
ABSTRACT The Rho GTPases play distinctive roles in cytoskeletal reorganization associated with growth and differentiation. The Cdc42/Rac-binding p21-activated kinase (PAK) and Rho-binding kinaseExpand

A Drosophila homolog of the Rac- and Cdc42-activated serine/threonine kinase PAK is a potential focal adhesion and focal complex protein that colocalizes with dynamic actin structures.
Changes in cell morphology are essential in the development of a multicellular organism. The regulation of the cytoskeleton by the Rho subfamily of small GTP-binding proteins is an importantExpand

A Tripartite Complex Containing MRCK Modulates Lamellar Actomyosin Retrograde Flow
Actomyosin retrograde flow underlies the contraction essential for cell motility. Retrograde flow in both lamellipodia and lamella is required for membrane protrusion and for force generation byExpand

Actin-binding and Cell Proliferation Activities of Angiomotin Family Members Are Regulated by Hippo Pathway-mediated Phosphorylation*
Background: LATS kinase, one of the core kinases of Hippo pathway, phosphorylates and inactivates the downstream coactivator YAP/TAZ. Results: The angiomotin (Amot) family members are phosphorylatedExpand

Phosphorylation of a Novel Myosin Binding Subunit of Protein Phosphatase 1 Reveals a Conserved Mechanism in the Regulation of Actin Cytoskeleton*
The myotonic dystrophy kinase-related kinases RhoA binding kinase and myotonic dystrophy kinase-related Cdc42 binding kinase (MRCK) are effectors of RhoA and Cdc42, respectively, for actinExpand

Intermolecular and Intramolecular Interactions Regulate Catalytic Activity of Myotonic Dystrophy Kinase-Related Cdc42-Binding Kinase α
ABSTRACT Myotonic dystrophy kinase-related Cdc42-binding kinase (MRCK) is a Cdc42-binding serine/threonine kinase with multiple functional domains. We had previously shown MRCKα to be implicated inExpand

Phosphorylation of Myosin Phosphatase Targeting Subunit 3 (MYPT3) and Regulation of Protein Phosphatase 1 by Protein Kinase A*
Myosin phosphatase targeting subunit 3 (MYPT3) and transforming growth factor-β-inhibited membrane-associated protein (TIMAP) are two closely related myosin-binding targeting subunits of proteinExpand

ACK Family Tyrosine Kinase Activity Is a Component of Dcdc42 Signaling during Dorsal Closure in Drosophila melanogaster
ABSTRACT We have characterized Drosophila melanogaster ACK (DACK), one of two members of the ACK family of nonreceptor tyrosine kinases in Drosophila. The ACKs are likely effectors for the smallExpand
