Details

Target of this antibody:
NFkB p50
Alternative names of antibody target:
DNA binding factor KBF1 EBP1
Background information:
Nuclear factor kappa B (NFkB) was identified as a sequence specific transcriptional activator that binds to the intronic enhancer of kappa light chain gene in B lymphocytes. NFkB is a heterodimer that consists of a 50 kDa DNA binding subunit (p50) and a 65 kDa transactivation subunit (p65/RelA). Both of these subunits exhibit sequence homology to the protooncogene c-Rel. The p50 has an isoform called p49/p52, and both proteins are derived from the amino-terminal of precursor protein p105 and p100. The p50/p65 heterodimer remains in the cytosol in an inactive form as a complex with its inhibitor, IkB. Upon stimulation of cells by a wide variety of stimuli such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS), pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1 & TNF, etc.), and viral infection, IkB is phosphorylated and degraded by proteosome. The active NFkB heterodimer is translocated into the nucleus and induces gene expression.

Gene
NF-κB (nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells) is a protein complex that controls transcription of DNA, cytokine production and cell survival. NF-κB is found in almost all animal cell types and is involved in cellular responses to stimuli such as stress, cytokines, free radicals, ultraviolet irradiation, oxidized LDL, and bacterial or viral antigens. NF-κB plays a key role in regulating the immune response to infection (κ light chains are critical components of immunoglobulins). Incorrect regulation of NF-κB has been linked to cancer, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, septic shock, viral infection, and improper immune development. NF-κB has also been implicated in processes of synaptic plasticity and memory

Polyclonals and antibodies
About
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
