Abstract

Molecular scaffold or adaptor proteins facilitate precise spatiotemporal regulation and integration of multiple signaling pathways to effect the optimal cellular response to changes in the immediate environment. Paxillin is a multidomain adaptor that recruits both structural and signaling molecules to focal adhesions, sites of integrin engagement with the extracellular matrix, where it performs a critical role in transducing adhesion and growth factor signals to elicit changes in cell migration and gene expression.
