Western blot analysis of lysates prepared from HeLa cells using rabbit anti- NFKB [pS536] antibody (Cat. no. 44-712G). HeLa cells were left untreated (lane 1) or treated with TNF-alpha and ALLN (lanes 2-5) were resolved on a 10% polyacrylamide gel and transferred to PVDF. Prior to incubation with the primary antibody, the membrane was incubated with no peptide (lane 2), the non-phosphopeptide corresponding to the phosphopeptide immunogen (lane 3), a generic phosphoserine containing peptide (lane 4), or the phosphopeptide immunogen (lane 5).

NF-kB is a nuclear transcription factor activated by various extra and intracellular stimuli such as cytokines, UV radiation, stress, in injury, and by bacterial and viral products. It is involved in regulation of various cellular events including cell growth, differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis and inflammation. NFKB1 (p50), a 50KDa functional sub-unit of NF-kB, is a member of Rel protein family. It is synthesized as a p105 precursor protein and consists of an N-terminal conserved RHD-region containing nuclear localization signal, DNA-binding and dimerization domains. NFKB1 (p50) forms homodimers or heterodimerizes with p65, forming the functional NF-kB factor. NFKB1 (p50) directs the nuclear translocation of NF-kB and is instrumental in its DNA-bidning. Pathological role of NF-kB has been suggested in AIDS, hematogenic cancer cell metastasis and rheumatoid arthritis.
