Abstract

Eukaryotic dimeric nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) is one of the main transcription factors that activate expression of genes, products of which play the key role in development of cardiovascular pathologies, carcinogenesis, and inflammatory and viral diseases. In this review, the main attention is given to modulation of the transcription factor NF-κB activity by antisense oligonucleotides and oligonucleotide decoys. Also, current concepts about interactions between NF-κB dimers and DNA and general problems that arise in experimental use of synthetic oligonucleotides in vivo are discussed.
