Background: PTK2 is a focal adhesion-associated protein kinase (FAK) involved in cellular adhesion and spreading processes. FAK, also known as protein tyrosine kinase 2 (PTK2), is a large non-receptor tyrosine kinase that is typically activated through integrin-dependent focal adhesions and controls the assembly and disassembly of focal contacts and cytoskeleton reorganization. FAK is highly enriched in the growth cones of neurons and has a major role in neuronal development. FAK kinase activation leads to the phosphorylation of α-actinin and N-WASP, an actin nucleation-promoting factor that is known to regulate the number of filopodia at the growth cone.
