Focal adhesion kinase and the recently identified proline-rich tyrosine kinase 2 (PYK2), also known as cell adhesion kinase &bgr ;, related adhesion focal tyrosine kinase or calcium-dependent protein tyrosine kinase, define a new family of non-receptor protein tyrosine kinases. Activation of PYK2 has been implicated in multiple signaling events, including modulation of ion channels, T- and B-cell receptor signaling and cell death. Mechanisms underlying the functional diversity of PYK2 are… CONTINUE READING
