    ..Importantly, the FAK FERM domain might act as a paradigm for the actions of other FERM domain-containing proteins. ..

    ..Our data provide mechanistic insight into how FAK controls the tumor immune environment, namely, through a transcriptional regulatory network mediated by nuclear IL-33. Targeting this axis may boost antitumor immunity in patients. ..

  4. Sandilands E, Schoenherr C, Frame M. p70S6K is regulated by focal adhesion kinase and is required for Src-selective autophagy. Cell Signal. 2015;27:1816-23 pubmed publisher
    ..We therefore deduce that the FAK-regulated signalling module PDK1-Akt-p70S6K that controls Src's intracellular trafficking operates at Src-containing autophagosomes. ..

    ..Therefore, FAK inhibitors may trigger immune-mediated tumor regression, providing previously unrecognized therapeutic opportunities. ..

    ..New work shows that cell spreading can be dissected into three distinct phases according to their differential requirements for talin function. ..
