IKK epsilon Antibody


Nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) is a ubiquitous transcription factor and an essential mediator of gene expression during activation of immune and inflammatory responses. NF-kappaB mediates the expression of a great variety of genes in response to extracellular stimuli. NF-kappaB is associated with IkB proteins in the cell cytoplasm, which inhibit NF-kappaB activity. IkB is phosphorylated by IkB kinase (IKK) complex that contains IKKalpha, IKKbeta, and IKKgamma. A novel molecule in the IKK complex was recently identified and designated IKKepsilon/IKK-i (1,2). IKK epsilon is required for the activation of NF-kappaB by PMA and T cell receptors but not by TNFalpha and IL-1 (1). IKKepsilon/IKK-i message is expressed in a variety of tissues and is inducible by TNFalpha, IL-1, and LPS (2).

Additional Names: IKK epsilon (CT), IKKi, IKKe
