Differential regulation of cell migration and proliferation through proline-rich tyrosine kinase 2 in endothelial cells.

Proline-rich tyrosine kinase 2 (Pyk2), a member of the focal adhesion kinase family, is thought to act as a key component in vasculogenesis and angiogenesis. Therefore, we studied the effect of mutant Pyk2 expression on the migration and proliferation in endothelial cells (ECs). Two types of mutant Pyk2 were examined by adenovirus vectors AxCA-Pyk2K457A… CONTINUE READING
