RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.

Mouse anti-FAK (Focal Adhesion Kinase)

cat# RDI-FAKabm      $375.00/vial 50ug

       RDI-FAKabm-1    $625.00/vial 150ug

Background: FAK (focal adhesion kinase) is a novel protein tyrosine kinase that co-localizes with integrins in cellular focal adhesions. It is a major phosphotyrosine-containing protein in normal avian and rodent fibroblasts, but exhibits enhanced tyrosine phosphorylation in cells transformed by Rous sarcoma virus. Sequence analysis of cDNA encoding p125 FAK has revealed it to be the prototype of a new class of protein tyrosine kinases that is part of an integrin-regulated signal transduction pathway. FAK does not contain SH2 or SH3 domains, but it does possess a 159 amino acid carboxy terminal sequence (Focal Adhesion Targeting sequence) responsible for directing its cellular localization. p125 FAK is phosphorylated in response to fibronectin, as well as to extracellular adhesion matrix ligands. It appears that FAK may be primarily autophosphorylated and this modification may affect the interaction of FAK with other proteins. It has recently been shown that FAK can associate with pp60(src) in RSV transformed cells and with c-fyn in normal chicken embryo cells.
