Sorry, no etymologies found.
Rajfur Z, Borchers C, Schaller MD, Jacobson K (2003) JNK phosphorylates paxillin and regulates cell migration.
Subculture on collagen type I was associated with changed expression of several proteins, including a significant upregulation of the paxillin-like LIM protein, hydrogen-peroxide-induced clone 5 (Hic-5), and increased the susceptibility of the cells to apoptosis in response to physiological triggers.
Src usually works with FAK to phosphorylate tyrosines in proteins like paxillin, which then disassemble the focal adhesion.
