The present study aimed to elucidate the subcellular distribution of the Cdc42 and Rac activated alpha and beta isoforms of p21-activated kinase (PAK) in the monkey cerebral neocortex and hippocampus. These proteins have been shown to play morphological roles through effects on the actin cytoskeleton. alphaPAK immunoreaction product was concentrated in regions of axon terminals or dendrites, some distance (0.2-1 microm) away from the synapse. The labeled portion of dendrite often appeared with… CONTINUE READING
