Detection of Human Phospho-Paxillin (Y118) by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of K562 human chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line and Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line untreated (-) or treated (+) with Pervanadate for 5 minutes. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Phospho-Paxillin (Y118) Antigen Affinity-purified Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6164) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Phospho-Paxillin (Y118) at approximately 80 kDa (as indicated). For additional reference, the membran was stripped and reprobed with 2 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Paxillin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (lower panel, Catalog # AF4259). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Paxillin is a 65 kDa cytoskeletal adaptor protein and member of the Paxillin family. Human Paxillin is 591 amino acids (aa) in length and contains four LIM zinc-binding domains. Alternative splicing produces three isoforms. Human Paxillin shares 94% and 85% aa identity with mouse and rat Paxillin, respectively. Paxillin is found at the interface between actin filaments and the plasma membrane, and it localizes to focal adhesions, where it provides a platform for the integration and coordination of adhesion- and growth factor-related signals. Paxillin phosphorylation at tyrosines 31 and 118 is required for integrin-mediated cytoskeletal reorganization, and may play a role in the disassembly of focal adhesions and stress fibers during cellular transformation.
