|Application ||WB, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||AF074382, 3641279|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||52 kDa|
|Application Notes||IKK gamma antibody can be used for detection of IKK gamma by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. A 52 kDa band should be detected. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||IKK gamma Antibody: IP, IP1, IP2, FIP3, IPD2, NEMO, FIP-3, Fip3p, AMCBX1, ZC2HC9, IKK-gamma, NF-kappa-B essential modulator, inhibitor of kappa light polypeptide gene enhancer in B-cells, kinase gamma|
|Target/Specificity||IKBKG; IKK gamma has no cross response to IKK alpha or IKK beta.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||IKK gamma 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||IKK gamma Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Regulatory subunit of the IKK core complex which phosphorylates inhibitors of NF-kappa-B thus leading to the dissociation of the inhibitor/NF-kappa-B complex and ultimately the degradation of the inhibitor. Its binding to scaffolding polyubiquitin seems to play a role in IKK activation by multiple signaling receptor pathways. However, the specific type of polyubiquitin recognized upon cell stimulation (either 'Lys-63'- linked or linear polyubiquitin) and its functional importance is reported conflictingly. Also considered to be a mediator for TAX activation of NF-kappa-B. Could be implicated in NF-kappa-B- mediated protection from cytokine toxicity. Essential for viral activation of IRF3. Involved in TLR3- and IFIH1-mediated antiviral innate response; this function requires 'Lys-27'-linked polyubiquitination.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Sumoylated NEMO accumulates in the nucleus in response to genotoxic stress|
|Tissue Location||Heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas|

IKK gamma 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. NF-κB is associated with IκB proteins in the cell cytoplasm, which inhibit NF-κB activity. The IκB kinase (IKKα and IKKβ) phosphorylates IkB and mediates NF-κB activation. A novel molecule in the IKK complex was recently identified and termed IKKγ/NEMO/FIP3/IKKAP1. IKKγ interacts with IKKβ and is required for the activation of IKK complex and NF-κB by LPS, PMA, TNF, and IL-1 stimulation. FIP3 was also shown to bind to RIP and NIK and to mediate TNF-induced NF-κB activation.
