: Recognizes the PYK2 (FAK2) protein
: Western blot human PYK2
PYK2 from other species may also be detectable
: Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 420-424 of human PYK2
: PBS, pH7.4, 0.02%NaN3, 50% glycerol

: PYK2 (also known as FAK2/RAFTK) is a member of the focal adhesion PTK family. PYK2/FAK2 can be activated by a variety of extracellular signals that elevate intracellular calcium concentration, and by stress signals (1). Unlike FAK, which is widely expressed in various tissues and links transmembrane integrin receptors to intracellular pathways, PYK2/FAK2 is expressed mainly in the central nervous system and in cells derived from hematopoietic lineages. In osteoclasts, although FAK is expressed, PYK2/FAK2 appears to be the predominant mediator of integrin alpha(v)beta3 signaling events that influence osteoclast physiology and pathology (2).
