Functional activation of proline-rich tyrosine kinase2 (PYK2) in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from patients with systemic lupus erythematosus

Abstract

BACKGROUND Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a representative systemic autoimmune disease characterized by activated T cells and polyclonally activated B cells that produce autoantibodies. Activation of autoreactive T and B cells plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of this disease. A role of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) in the pathogenesis has been… (More)
