The IκB Kinase (IKK) Complex Is Tripartite and Contains IKKγ but Not IKAP as a Regular Component*

It is concluded that while IKKγ is a stoichiometric component of the IKK complex, obligatory for NF-κB signaling, IKAP is not associated with IKKs and plays no specific role in cytokine-induced NF-σκB activation.

IκB Kinase (IKK)-Associated Protein 1, a Common Component of the Heterogeneous IKK Complex

Recombinant IKK1 or IKK2 forms homo- or heterodimers, suggesting the possibility that similar IKK complexes exist in vivo, and a novel component common to both complexes is identified, named IKK-associated protein 1 (IKKAP1).

Phosphorylation of Serine 68 in the IκB Kinase (IKK)-binding Domain of NEMO Interferes with the Structure of the IKK Complex and Tumor Necrosis Factor-α-induced NF-κB Activity*

Evidence is provided for a signal-induced phosphorylation-dependent alteration of the IKK complex emphasizing the dynamic nature of this multisubunit kinase complex and that the protein phosphatase PP2A is involved in the regulation of the Ser68-based mechanism.

The IKKβ Subunit of IκB Kinase (IKK) is Essential for Nuclear Factor κB Activation and Prevention of Apoptosis

IKKβ-deficient mice are defective in activation of IKK and NF-κB in response to either tumor necrosis factor α or interleukin 1, and IKKα is unresponsive to IKK activators.

Functional Isoforms of IκB Kinase α (IKKα) Lacking Leucine Zipper and Helix-Loop-Helix Domains Reveal that IKKα and IKKβ Have Different Activation Requirements

The results demonstrate that the functional roles of seemingly analogous domains in IKKα and IKKβ need not be equivalent and can also exhibit different contextual dependencies, and illustrates potential modes of NF-κB activation, which are not subject to the same in vivo regulatory constraints as either IKK α or IKK β.

Recombinant IκB Kinases α and β Are Direct Kinases of IκBα*

In vitro, in vitro, IKKα and IKKβ are two independent kinases of IκBα, a large multiprotein complex that catalyzes the phosphorylation of the inhibitory subunit of NF-κB.

Tetrameric Oligomerization of IκB Kinase γ (IKKγ) Is Obligatory for IKK Complex Activity and NF-κB Activation

It is shown that IKKγ predominantly forms tetramers and interacts with IKKα or IKKβ in this state, and proposed that tetramerization enforces a spatial positioning of two kinase dimers to facilitate transautophosphorylation and activation.

Kinetic Mechanisms of IκB-related Kinases (IKK) Inducible IKK and TBK-1 Differ from IKK-1/IKK-2 Heterodimer*

The results indicate that although each of these enzymes exhibits a random sequential kinetic mechanism, the effect of the binding of one substrate on the affinity of the other substrate is significantly different.

IKK-γ is an essential regulatory subunit of the IκB kinase complex

By using a monoclonal antibody against IKK-α, the IKK complex is purify to homogeneity from human cell lines and it is found that IKK is composed of similar amounts of IKK, α and β and two other polypeptides, for which the authors obtained partial sequences.

Association of the Adaptor TANK with the IκB Kinase (IKK) Regulator NEMO Connects IKK Complexes with IKKε and TBK1 Kinases*

TANK is identified as a NEMO/IKKγ-interacting protein via yeast two-hybrid analyses and results indicate that TANK can synergize with IKKε or TBK1 to link them to IKK complexes, where the two kinases may modulate aspects of NF-κB activation.

Mapping of the inducible IkappaB phosphorylation sites that signal its ubiquitination and degradation

The mapped inducible phosphorylation sites of IkappaBalpha found that two residues, serines 32 and 36, were phosphorylated in response to either tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-1, or phorbol ester, and it is suggested that activation of a single IkappaB kinas e or closely related Ikappa B kinases is the first cr itical step in NF-kappaB activation.

A cytokine-responsive IκB kinase that activates the transcription factor NF-κB

IKK turns out to be the long-sought-after protein kinase that mediates the critical regulatory step in NF-κB activation, and phosphorylates IκBs on the sites that trigger their degradation.

MAP3K-related kinase involved in NF-KB induction by TNF, CD95 and IL-1

The findings indicate that NIK participates in an NF-KB-inducing signalling cascade common to receptors of the TNF/NGF family and to the interleukin-1 type-I receptor.

CHUK, a new member of the helix-loop-helix and leucine zipper families of interacting proteins, contains a serine-threonine kinase catalytic domain.

The structural features of the CHUK polypeptide suggest that its putative kinase activity may be targetted to H-L-H and/or leucine zipper transcription factors, and may provide new insights into the regulated transmission of cytoplasmic signals to specific nuclear factors manifesting rapid alterations in patterns of cellular gene expression.

N- and C-Terminal Sequences Control Degradation of MAD3/IkBa in Response to Inducers of NF-kB Activity

It is proposed that treatment of 70Z/3 cells with either phorbol myristate acetate or lipopolysaccharide induces a kinase activity which phosphorylates serines 32 and 36 and that these phosphorylations target the protein for rapid proteolytic degradation, thus allowing NF-kB to translocate to the nucleus and to activate gene expression.

In vivo stimulation of I kappa B phosphorylation is not sufficient to activate NF-kappa B

It appears that activation of NF-kappa B requires degradation of I kappa B alpha while it is a part of the Rel cytoplasmic complex, with inducible phosphorylation of the inhibitory subunit influencing the rate of degradation.
