This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
- I kappa B alpha
FunctionInhibits the activity of dimeric NF-kappa-B/REL complexes by trapping REL dimers in the cytoplasm through masking of their nuclear localization signals. On cellular stimulation by immune and proinflammatory responses, becomes phosphorylated promoting ubiquitination and degradation, enabling the dimeric RELA to translocate to the nucleus and activate transcription.
Involvement in diseaseEctodermal dysplasia, anhidrotic, with T-cell immunodeficiency autosomal dominant
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NF-kappa-B inhibitor family.
Contains 5 ANK repeats.
modificationsPhosphorylated; disables inhibition of NF-kappa-B DNA-binding activity. Phosphorylation at positions 32 and 36 is prerequisite to recognition by UBE2D3 leading to polyubiquitination and subsequent degradation.
Sumoylated; sumoylation requires the presence of the nuclear import signal. Sumoylation blocks ubiquitination and proteasome-mediated degradation of the protein thereby increasing the protein stability.
Monoubiquitinated at Lys-21 and/or Lys-22 by UBE2D3. Ubiquitin chain elongation is then performed by CDC34 in cooperation with the SCF(FBXW11) E3 ligase complex, building ubiquitin chains from the UBE2D3-primed NFKBIA-linked ubiquitin. The resulting polyubiquitination leads to protein degradation. Also ubiquitinated by SCF(BTRC) following stimulus-dependent phosphorylation at Ser-32 and Ser-36.
Deubiquitinated by porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus Nsp2 protein, which thereby interferes with NFKBIA degradation and impairs subsequent NF-kappa-B activation.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Shuttles between the nucleus and the cytoplasm by a nuclear localization signal (NLS) and a CRM1-dependent nuclear export.
- Information by UniProt
Western blot analysis of A431 cells treated with pervanadate (1 mM) for 30 min. Blots were probed with anti-IκBα (lane 1), anti-IκBα (Tyr-42) (lanes 2-5), or anti-IκBα (Tyr-305) (lanes 6-9). In some lanes, the antibodies were used in the absence (lane 2 & 6) or presence of ab42716, IκBα (Tyr-42) (lane 3 & 8) or ab42717, IκBα (Tyr-305) (lane 4 & 7) blocking peptides, or BSA conjugated to phospho-tyrosine (lane 5 & 9).
