: PAK1 is a member of the p21-activated kinases (PAKs) which have been implicated in the regulation of cell morphology, motility and transformation. These serine/threonine kinases are activated by and are effectors of small GTPases, cdc 42 and Rac. PAK1 belongs to the Group I PAKs which also includes PAK2 and PAK3 (1). PAK1 is a key regulator of the actin cytoskeleton, adhesion and cell motility. Inactive dimeric PAK1 is mainly cytosolic and interaction with the activators Cdc42-GTP and Rac1-GTP stimulates the kinase at the sites of cellular protrusions forming adhesions to the extracellular matrix (2).
