PAK4 a protein kinase of the STE20 family. A mediator of filopodia formation and may play a role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton. Interacts specifically with the GTP-bound form of Cdc42 and weakly activates the JNK family of MAP kinases. Overexpressed in several cancers. Required for ras-dependent anchorage-independent growth of tumor cell lines. Four alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
