|Description||The activity of PAK family kinases is regulated through interaction with the small GTPases Cdc42 and Rac1. PAKs are activated by the GTP-bound form of Cdc-42 and Rac1, and recruitment of PAKs to focal complexes has been implicated in Cdc42- and Rac1-dependent regulation of focal contact formation. PAK-interacting exchange factor (PIX) was identified in a screen for proteins that bind PAKs. Two forms of PIX have been identified: an 85 kDa protein designated alphaPIX and a 78 kDa protein designated betaPIX. These proteins have 80% identity in their overlapping regions, which include myosin-like, pleckstrin (PH), Dbl (DH), and SH3 domains. In addition, alphaPIX contains a calponin-like domain at the N-terminus. The expression of betaPIX is ubiquitous, while alphaPIX is expressed in heart, muscle, and thymus. PIX can act as a guanine nuleotide exchange factor for Rac1 and co-transfection of betaPIX, Cdc42, and alphaPAK results in increased alphaPAK activity. PIX binding to PAK is required for localization of PAKs to focal complexes and injection of betaPIX leads to Rac1-dependent membrane ruffling. Thus, PIX is important for PAK localization and activity during small GTPase-dependent regulation of cell morphology.|
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
