Here neurologists and other biomedical researchers explain in some detail how PAKs--particularly the oncogenic kinases PAK1 and PAK4 and their blockers--may control various aspects of life and health, and how mammalian PAKs have functionally evolved from their ancestral origins in unicellular organisms such as yeast and amoebas through a series of mutations over millions of years.
