Nuclear factor of kappa light polypeptide gene enhancer in B-cells 1

NF-kappaB, NF-kappaB,
This gene encodes a 105 kD protein which can undergo cotranslational processing by the 26S proteasome to produce a 50 kD protein. The 105 kD protein is a Rel protein-specific transcription inhibitor and the 50 kD protein is a DNA binding subunit of the NF-kappa-B (NFKB) protein complex. NFKB is a transcription regulator that is activated by various intra- and extra-cellular stimuli such as cytokines, oxidant-free radicals, ultraviolet irradiation, and bacterial or viral products. Activated NFKB translocates into the nucleus and stimulates the expression of genes involved in a wide variety of biological functions. Inappropriate activation of NFKB has been associated with a number of inflammatory diseases while persistent inhibition of NFKB leads to inappropriate immune cell development or delayed cell growth. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009] (from NCBI)

Chronic intermittent hypoxia induces atherosclerosis by NF-κB-dependent mechanisms.
Liu et al., United States. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2012
P50 gene deletion inhibited vascular wall inflammation, reduced hepatic TNF-alpha level, attenuated the elevation in serum cholesterol level and diminished macrophage foam cell formation induced by CIH+HCD exposure.
Leukotriene B(4) inhibits neutrophil apoptosis via NADPH oxidase activity: redox control of NF-κB pathway and mitochondrial stability.
Arruda et al., Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2012
NADPH oxidase-derived reactive oxygen species are critical to leukotriene B(4) pro-survival effect on neutrophils. This effect also relies on redox modulation of nuclear factor kappaB signaling pathway.
