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.

Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) rabbit anti-NFkB p50 polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
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
