Intracellular pathways related to cell survival regulate neuronal physiology during development and neurodegenerative disorders. One of the pathways that have recently emerged with an important role in these processes is nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB). The activity of this pathway leads to the nuclear translocation of the NF-κB transcription factors and the regulation of anti-apoptotic gene expression. Different stimuli can activate the pathway through different intracellular cascades (canonical…

Neuronal Gene Targets of NF-κB and Their Dysregulation in Alzheimer's Disease
TLDR
A comprehensive view of the current understanding of the gene targets of this transcription factor in neurons in the intact brain is offered and an overview of studies investigating NF-κB signaling, including its downstream targets, in the AD brain is provided as a means of uncovering the basic physiological mechanisms by which memory becomes fragile in the disease.
Role of Nuclear Factor Kappa B (NF-KB) Signalling in Neurodegenerative Diseases: An Mechanistic Approach
TLDR
Regulation of NF- KB signaling pathway may be a safe and effective treatment strategy for various disorders and plays a novel therapeutic target in preventing various diseases.
Impact of nuclear factor‐κB on restoration of neuron growth and differentiation in hippocampus of degenerative brain
TLDR
This work proposes the importance of natural or synthetic NF‐κB activators for neurogenesis and indicates an impact of phosphorylated p65 on the transcription of genes during cell growth and the immune response.
Protein kinase D exerts neuroprotective functions during oxidative stress via nuclear factor kappa B‐independent signaling pathways
TLDR
The findings support the notion that the neuroprotective role of PKD is exerted independently from NF kappaB signaling and suggest a potential mitochondrial function for PKD in cultured neurons.
Upstream regulators and downstream effectors of NF-κB in Alzheimer's disease
Roles for NF-κB and Gene Targets of NF-κB in Synaptic Plasticity, Memory, and Navigation
TLDR
There is ample evidence to suggest a critical role for NF-κB in memory, but understanding of its gene targets in neurons is limited and only beginning to be appreciated, so this review will synthesize the research evaluating gene targets of NF-σB in synaptic plasticity and memory.
Minimal NF-κB activity in neurons
Nuclear factor‐kappa β as a therapeutic target for Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
Since any impairment in the pathways associated with NF‐κβ signaling causes altered neuronal dynamics, neurotherapeutics using compounds including, antioxidants, bioflavonoids, and non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs against such abnormalities offer possibilities to rectify aberrant excitatory neuronal activity in AD.
The role of microRNAs in diseases and related signaling pathways.
TLDR
This article reviews miRNAs involvement in incidence of diseases by changing signaling pathways and suggests that regulation of the signaling pathways is necessary for the maintenance of natural and physiological characteristics of any cell.

The Canonical Nuclear Factor-κB Pathway Regulates Cell Survival in a Developmental Model of Spinal Cord Motoneurons
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the canonical NF-κB pathway mediates motoneuron survival induced by neurotrophic factors, and the noncanonical pathway is not related to this survival effect.
Regulation of Neuronal Cell Adhesion Molecule Expression by NF-κB*
TLDR
It is shown that kainic acid or nitric oxide also increase the levels ofNCAM mRNA and protein in neurons and that this induction of NCAM expression is sensitive to dexamethasone and to antisense, but not missense, oligonucleotides designed to suppress NF-κB synthesis.

TLDR
This work has shown that crosstalk constitutes a decision-making process that determines the consequences of NF-κB and IKK activation and, ultimately, cell fate.
Stimulus-dependent activation of NF-κB specifies apoptosis or neuroprotection in cerebellar granule cells
TLDR
It is shown that pre-conditioning leading to NF-κB activation also protects against oxidative insults generated by Fe2+ ions and protected against staurosporine-induced cell death.
NF-κB signalling regulates the growth of neural processes in the developing PNS and CNS
TLDR
A mechanism for controlling the growth of neural processes in developing peripheral and central neurons involving the transcription factor NF-κB is reported, which has important implications for neural development and may provide an explanation for reported involvement of NF-σB in learning and memory.
Signaling via NF-kappaB in the nervous system.
TLDR
A model is proposed explaining this paradox as deregulated physiological NF-kappaB activity, where novel results are integrated, showing that p65 could be turned from an activator to a repressor of anti-apoptotic genes.

Nuclear factor-kappaB/Rel proteins: a point of convergence of signalling pathways relevant in neuronal function and dysfunction.
TLDR
It is hypothesize that NF-kappaB/Rel proteins may represent the point of convergence of several signalling pathways relevant for initiating or accelerating the process of neuronal dysfunction and degeneration in many neurological diseases, including Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's Disease, CNS viral infections, and possibly others.
NF-kappaB in the nervous system.
TLDR
Inhibition of NF-kappaB in glia might ameliorate disease, whereas activation in neurons might enhance memory, and this review focuses on results produced by the analysis of genetic models.
