We have investigated whether the transcription factor NF-kappaB plays a role in regulating neuronal survival by manipulating NF-kappaB activation in the nerve growth factor (NGF)-dependent sensory neurons of the embryonic mouse trigeminal ganglion. Overexpression of either the p65 or the p50 NF-kappaB subunits resulted in NF-kappaB activation and promoted in vitro survival as effectively as NGF. Expression of a superrepressor IkappaB-alpha protein prevented NF-kappaB activation in p65/p50… 
Activation of Nuclear Factor κb and bcl-x Survival Gene Expression by Nerve Growth Factor Requires Tyrosine Phosphorylation of IκBα
It is concluded that NGF and TNF-α induce different signaling pathways in neurons to activate NFκB and bcl-x gene expression.
Nerve Growth Factor Activation of Nuclear Factor κB through Its p75 Receptor Is an Anti-apoptotic Signal in RN22 Schwannoma Cells*
Results suggest that NGF activation of NF-κB through the p75 receptor promotes survival, counterbalancing the pro-apoptotic signal.
Activation of Nuclear Factor-κB via Endogenous Tumor Necrosis Factor α Regulates Survival of Axotomized Adult Sensory Neurons
The results show for the first time that cytokine-mediated activation of NF-κB is a component of the signaling pathway responsible for maintenance of adult sensory neuron survival after axon damage.
Analysis of the NF-κB and PI 3-Kinase/Akt Survival Pathways in Nerve Growth Factor-Dependent Neurons
It is found that expression of the NF-kappaB protein c-Rel in NGF-deprived neurons blocks cytochrome c release but does not inhibit c-Jun phosphorylation, and the results suggest that the PI 3-kinase/Akt and NF- kappaB survival pathways target distinct cell death events in neurons.
p75 neurotrophin receptor mediates neurotrophin activation of NF-kappa B and induction of iNOS expression in P19 neurons.
Results of RT-PCR indicate that P19 neurons express several neurotrophin receptors (p75(NTR), trkB, and trkC, but not trkA) but they do not express any of the four neurotrophins, suggesting an important role of reactive oxygen intermediates in the pathway by which neurotrophs activate NF-kappaB.
NF-κB Signaling Promotes Both Cell Survival and Neurite Process Formation in Nerve Growth Factor-Stimulated PC12 Cells
Findings indicate that, although both of these receptors lead to the activation of NF-κB, they proceed via distinct proximal-signaling intermediates and contribute to different cellular outcomes.
NF-κB Prevents TNF-α–Induced Apoptosis in an Oligodendrocyte Cell Line
Exposure to plasmids expressing either the p50- or p65-subunit of human NF-κB into Central Glia-4—a rat oligodendrocyte precursor cell line—and the influence of NF-σB function on tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α)-induced apoptosis imply that NF-β acts as a potent inhibitor of TNF-induced apoptotic activity in oligodendedrocytes.
Identification of Interleukin 1 Receptor-associated Kinase as a Conserved Component in the p75-Neurotrophin Receptor Activation of Nuclear Factor-κB*
The identification of p75-associated kinase that mediates NGF-driven NF-κB activation is reported for the first time, and novel information regarding the proximal components involved in p75 receptor signaling is provided.
Constitutive Nuclear Factor-κB Activity Is Required for Central Neuron Survival
A physiological role for NF-κB in maintaining survival of central neurons is demonstrated and induction of NF-σB activity increased levels of anti-apoptotic proteins and was strongly neuroprotective.
Cytokine-Induced Nuclear Factor Kappa B Activation Promotes the Survival of Developing Neurons
It is demonstrated that NF-κB plays a key role in mediating the survival response of developing neurons to cytokines, including in cytokine-dependent developing sensory neurons.


Nerve Growth Factor-Dependent Activation of NF-κB Contributes to Survival of Sympathetic Neurons
It is shown that nerve growth factor (NGF) activates the transcription factors NF-κB and AP-1 in cultured sympathetic neurons, and the activation of NF-kkB/Rel transcription factors may contribute to the survival of NGF-dependent sympathetic neurons.
Competitive Signaling Between TrkA and p75 Nerve Growth Factor Receptors Determines Cell Survival
Results indicate that TrkA-mediated rescue involves not only activation of survival signals but also simultaneous suppression of a death signal by p75, a novel mechanism that achieves alternative cellular responses by merging signals from different ligand–receptor systems.
Stimulation of ionotropic glutamate receptors activates transcription factor NF-kappa B in primary neurons.
It is reported that brief treatments with kainate or high potassium strongly activated NF-kappa B in granule cells from rat cerebellum, and this may explain the kainates-induced cell surface expression of major histocompatibility complex class I molecules, which are encoded by genes known to be controlled by NF- kappa B.
Death of oligodendrocytes mediated by the interaction of nerve growth factor with its receptor p75
Results indicate that NGF has the ability to promote cell death in specific cell types through a ligand-dependent signalling mechanism involving the p75 neurotrophin receptor.
Differential Modulation of Neuron Survival during Development by Nerve Growth Factor Binding to the p75 Neurotrophin Receptor*
Nerve growth factor (NGF) supports the survival and differentiation of distinct populations of peripheral and central neurons. NGF binds to two classes of cell-surface receptors, the protein tyrosine
Selective Activation of NF-κB by Nerve Growth Factor Through the Neurotrophin Receptor p75
In the absence of TrkA, NGF binding to p75NTR activated the transcription factor nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) in rat Schwann cells, and the effect was selective for NGF; NF-κBs was not activated by BDNF or NT-3.
NGF Binding to p75 Enhances the Sensitivity of Sensory and Sympathetic Neurons to NGF at Different Stages of Development
Results indicate that binding of NGF to p75 enhances the sensitivity of N GF-dependent neurons to NGF at stages in their development when the levels of p75 and TrkA are similar.

Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) binding to the TNF receptor (TNFR) potentially initiates apoptosis and activates the transcription factor nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB), which suppresses
Ectopic trkA expression mediates a NGF survival response in NGF- independent sensory neurons but not in parasympathetic neurons
These findings not only provide the first direct experimental demonstration of trkA mediating a physiological response in an appropriate cell type, namely NGF-promoted survival of embryonic neurons, but indicate that not all neurons are able to respond to atrkA-mediated signal transduction event.
Inducible nuclear expression of newly synthesized I kappa B alpha negatively regulates DNA-binding and transcriptional activities of NF-kappa B.
Following the appearance of I kappa B alpha in the nuclei of activated cells, a dramatic reduction in the amount of nuclear p50 occurs, suggesting that NF-kappa B-I kappaB alpha complexes are cleared from the nucleus.
