Immunofluorescence analysis of IRAK-1 Antibody was done on 70% confluent log phase HeLa cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 15 minutes, permeabilized with 0.25% Triton™ X-100 for 10 minutes, and blocked with 5% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. The cells were labeled with IRAK-1 Antibody (385600) at 1µg/mL in 1% BSA and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and then labeled with Alexa flour 488 Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (A11008) at a dilution of 1:400 for 45 minutes at room temperature (Panel a: green). Nuclei (Panel b: blue) were stained with SlowFade® Gold Antifade Mountant with DAPI (S36938). F-actin (Panel c: red) was stained with Alexa Fluor 594 Phalloidin (A12381). Panel d is a merged image showing Nuclear localization. Panel e is a no primary antibody control. The images were captured at 40X magnification.

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 interleukin-1 (IL-1), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) , and lipopolysaccarides (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-kappa B activation by members in the IL-1 family including IL-1 and a novel cytokine IL-18.
