IRAK Monoclonal 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 including IL-1, TNFalpha and LPS. A serine/threonine protein kinase associated with IL-1 receptor (IRAK) and its homologue mouse pelle-like protein kinase (mPLK) were identified recently. IRAK is associated with the IL-1 receptor subunits IL-1RI and IL-1RAcP after IL-1 binding and serves as a signaling molecule to mediate IL-1 response. IRAK mediates a signaling cascade leading to NF-kB activation by members in IL-1 family including IL-1 and a novel cytokine IL-18 (also termed IGIF).

A biological hazard is an organism or byproduct that is harmful to other living things. It is anything coming from living organisms that is pollen, fungi, animals, bacteria and viruses that could be a threat to someone's health. Thanks a lot...
