Induced focal adhesion kinase expression suppresses apoptosis by activating NF-kappaB signaling in intestinal epithelial cells.


Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) integrates various extracellular and intracellular signals and is implicated in a variety of biological functions, but its exact role and downstream targeting signals in the regulation of apoptosis in intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) remains unclear. The current study tested the hypothesis that FAK has an antiapoptotic role in… (More)
