Rabbit anti Human Focal Adhesion Kinase antibody recognizes human focal adhesion kinase 1, also known as Focal adhesion kinase-related nonkinase, Protein phosphatase 1 regulatory subunit 71 or Protein-tyrosine kinase 2. Focal adhesion kniase belongs to the Tyr protein kinase family and contains a single FERM domain and a single protein kinase domain. Rabbit anti Human Focal Adhesion Kinase antibody detects an epitope within the internal region of Focal adhesion kinase (FAK), a 125 kDa cytoplasmic protein tyrosine kinase that is activated by numerous stimuli and controls cell motility, proliferation and apoptosis. FAK resides at focal adhesions that form between cells growing in the presence of extracellular matrix constituents (Brami-Cherrier et al. 2014). FAK is a highly conserved molecule amongst vertebrate species and the immunogen sequence domonstrates 100% identity with mouse, rat, many non-human primates, bovine, rabbit and chicken species.

FAK plays a potential role in oncogenic transformation, and its expression is thought to be correlated to tumour invasiveness (Ibbetson et al. 2013).
