Focal adhesion kinase-dependent regulation of adhesive forces involves vinculin recruitment to focal adhesions.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION FAK (focal adhesion kinase), an essential non-receptor tyrosine kinase, plays pivotal roles in migratory responses, adhesive signalling and mechanotransduction. FAK-dependent regulation of cell migration involves focal adhesion turnover dynamics as well as actin cytoskeleton polymerization and lamellipodia protrusion. Whereas roles… (More)
