The transcription factor NF-kappaB, (nuclear factor kappa-B) is controlled by interaction with an inhibitory subunit, IkappaB, which restricts NF-kappaB to the cytoplasm. Following stimulation by various cytokines or other stimuli, IkappaB becomes degraded and NF-kappaB is released to the nucleus. The release of IkappaB from NF-kappaB is a critical step in the activation of NF-kappaB signal pathways. A group of proteins form an NF-kappaB regulatory complex, or signalsome. Two members of this complex are a pair of closely related serine/threonine kinases, IKKalpha and IKKbeta (aka IKK-1 and IKK-2), which phosphorylate critical residues of IkappaB, thus targeting it for subsequent degradation. The IKK complex contains similar amounts of IKKalpha, IKKbeta, as well as two other polypeptides, which are differentially processed forms of a third subunit, IKKgamma. IKKalpha and IKKbeta become activated following phosphorylation by upstream kinases, including NF-kappaB-inducing kinase (NIK) and MEKK1. IKKgamma interacts preferentially with IKKbeta and is required for the activation of the IKK complex. Thus the IKK kinases play an important role in the activation of NF-kappaB. IKKgamma migrates as a doublet between 50-55 kDa in SDS-PAGE.
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

|Application Notes||Applications include western blot analysis and immunoprecipitation. In immunoprecipitation experiments, it is reported that the C73-764 antibody brings down the IKK complex (IKKalpha, IKKbeta, and IKKgamma). The immunoprecipitation application has not been evaluated. NIH/3T3 cells (ATCC CRL 1658) are recommended as a western blot positive control.|
