A suggested positive control for IHC is human breast carcinoma; suggested positive control for ICC/IF is Hela cells.
PAK proteins are critical effectors that link RhoGTPases to cytoskeleton reorganization and nuclear signaling. PAK proteins, a family of serine/threonine p21-activating kinases, include PAK1, PAK2, PAK3 and PAK4. These proteins serve as targets for the small GTP binding proteins, CDC42 and RAC1, and have been implicated in a wide range of biological activities. PAK1 regulates cell motility and morphology. PAK2 is activated by proteolytic cleavage during caspase-mediated apoptosis and may play a role in regulating the apoptotic events in the dying cell.
