Regulation of the NF-kappa B/rel transcription factor and I kappa B inhibitor system.

Author information

Rockefeller University, New York.


The interplay between proteins of the NF-kappa B/rel and I kappa B families is a tightly regulated process that ensures appropriate responses to specific environmental and developmental signals. Various mechanisms are utilized in regulating NF-kappa B/rel and I kappa B activities, some unique to this transcription factor system. All of these regulatory strategies converge towards one purpose, namely the controlled nuclear translocation of activated NF-kappa B/rel protein complexes. The variety of rel-related and ankyrin repeat containing subunits makes regulation of this system both rich and complicated.
