Regulatory Status Legend
Focal Adhesion Kinase (FAK) is a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase that associates with integrins in focal adhesions. Its cellular localization is directed by a 125-amino acid sequence at the C terminus called the "Focal Adhesion Targeting" (FAT) domain, and the phosphorylation state of serine 910 (S910) in the FAT domain may regulate the assembly of focal adhesions. Furthermore, the binding of extracellular matrix ligands to integrins triggers tyrosine phosphorylations near FAK's kinase domain that increase its kinase activity, and additional tyrosine phosphorylations near proline-rich motifs create binding sites for the SH2 domains of various adaptor proteins. FAK's ability to bind numerous structural and signaling proteins via a variety of interactions regulates FAK's targeting to focal adhesions, modulates its kinase activity, and initiates intracellular signaling cascades. Thus, studies suggest that FAK may integrate cellular events controlling cell motility, growth, and invasiveness.
The K73-480 monoclonal antibody recognizes the phosphorylated S910 of human FAK. The orthologous phosphorylation sites in mouse and rat FAK are S948 and S913, respectively.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
