Nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappa-B) is a ubiquitous transcription factor and an essential mediator of gene expression during activation of immune and inflammatory responses. NF-kappa-B mediates the expression of a great variety of genes in response to extracellular stimuli including IL-1, TNF-a and bacteria product LPS. NF-kappa-B is associated with Ikappa-B proteins in the cell cytoplasm, which inhibit NF-kappa-B activity. The long-sought Ikappa-B kinase (IKK), which phosphorylates Ikappa-B, and mediates Ikappa-B degradation and NF-kappa-B activation, was recently identified by several laboratories. IKK is a serine protein kinase, and the IKK complex contains alpha and beta subunits (IKK-a and IKK-b). IKK-a and IKK-b interact with each other and both are essential for the NF-kappa-B activation. IKK-a specifically phosphorylates Ikappa-B-alpha. IKK-a is expressed in a variety of human tissues.
