Positive control: 3T3 cells
ROCK2, the predominant ROCK isoform in skeletal muscle, is an important regulator downstream of Rho GTPases. ROCK2 regulates cytokinesis, smooth muscle contraction, the formation of actin stress fibers and focal adhesions, and the activation of the c-fos serum response element. This protein, which is an isozyme of ROCK1 is a target for the small GTPase Rho.
