Rabbit anti Human paxillin antibody recognizes paxillin (PXN). Paxillin is a scaffolding protein, and is a major component of focal adhesions (FAs) required for cell attachment, spreading, and migration. Paxillin is involved with recruiting specific kinases, phosphatases, cofactors, oncoproteins, and structural proteins with downstream roles in intracellular signaling pathways, leading to reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton (Lopez-Colome et al. 2017). The protein shows dynamic changes in expression via protein-protein interaction and phosphorylation. Abnormal paxillin expression correlates with tumor occurrence, invasion, and metastasis of some cancer types (Yang et al. 2017). Overexpression of paxillin has been identified in gastric cancer, prostate cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, and colorectal carcinoma (Zhao et al. 2015).
