|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q99558, 9020|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 104 kDa|
|Application Notes||NIK antibody can be used for detection of NIK by Western blot at 1 - 2 μg/mL.|
|Other Names||NIK Antibody: HS, NIK, HSNIK, FTDCR1B, Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase 14, NF-kappa-beta-inducing kinase, HsNIK, mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase 14|
|Target/Specificity||NIK antibody was raised against a 17 amino acid peptide near the carboxy terminus of human NIK.|
The immunogen is located within the last 50 amino acids of NIK.
|Reconstitution & Storage||NIK antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||NIK Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Lymphotoxin beta-activated kinase which seems to be exclusively involved in the activation of NF-kappa-B and its transcriptional activity. Promotes proteolytic processing of NFKB2/P100, which leads to activation of NF-kappa-B via the non- canonical pathway. Could act in a receptor-selective manner.|
|Tissue Location||Weakly expressed in testis, small intestine, spleen, thymus, peripheral blood leukocytes, prostate, ovary and colon.|

NIK Antibody: Nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) is a ubiquitous transcription factor and an essential mediator of gene expression during activation of immune and inflammatory responses. NF-κB mediates the expression of a great variety of genes in response to extracellular stimuli including IL-1, TNFα, LPS and mitogens. A serine/threonine protein kinase which mediates NF-κB activation by IL-1, TNFα and CD95 was identified recently and designated NIK (for NF-κB inducing kinase). NIK is an activator of IκB kinase alpha and beta (IKKα and IKKβ). Therefore, NIK is a key molecule in the NF-κB signaling pathway leading to the induction of a variety of gene expression in response to proinflammatory cytokines and bacteria products.
