NF-κB (Nuclear Factor κ B) is a nuclear transcription factor found in all cell types and is involved in cellular responses to stimuli such as stress, cytokines, free radicals, ultraviolet irradiation, and bacterial or viral antigens. NF-κB plays a key role in regulating the immune response to infection. Consistent with this role, incorrect regulation of NF-κB has been linked to cancer, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, septic shock, viral infection and improper immune development. There are five members in the NF-κB family: NF-κB1, NF-κB2, RelA (also named p65), RelB, and c-Rel. The RelB protein is present in the cytosol, bound to p50 or p52 and an inhibitory IκB protein, forming an inactive trimeric complex. Following cell signalling events leading to IκB degradation, Rel/NFκ-B proteins are translocated to the nucleus where they regulate gene expression. The genes controlled by Rel/NF-κB family members are predominantly genes involved in the host response to infection, stress and injury. RelB mediates the regulation of genes involved in immune and inflammatory processes. NF-κ-B is a pleiotropic transcription factor which is present in almost all cell types and is involved in many biological processed such as inflammation, immunity, differentiation, cell growth, tumorigenesis and apoptosis. NF-κ-B is a homo- or heterodimeric complex formed by the Rel-like domain-containing proteins RELA/p65, RELB, NFKB1/p105, NFKB1/p50, REL and NFKB2/p52. The dimers bind at κ-B sites in the DNA of their target genes and the individual dimers have distinct preferences for different κ-B sites that they can bind with distinguishable affinity and specificity. Different dimer combinations act as transcriptional activators or repressors, respectively. NF-κ-B is controlled by various mechanisms of post-translational modification and subcellular compartmentalization as well as by interactions with other cofactors or corepressors. NF-κ-B complexes are held in the cytoplasm in an inactive state complexed with members of the NF-κ-B inhibitor (I-κ-B) family. In a conventional activation pathway, I-κ-B is phosphorylated by I-κ-B kinases (IKKs) in response to different activators, subsequently degraded thus liberating the active NF-κ-B complex which translocates to the nucleus. NF-κ-B heterodimeric RelB-p50 and RelB-p52 complexes are transcriptional activators. RELB neither associates with DNA nor with RELA/p65 or REL. Stimulates promoter activity in the presence of NFKB2/p49.
