May act as a scaffold protein that may assemble active IKK-MAP3K14 complexes (IKKA, IKKB and MAP3K14/NIK). Interacts preferentially with MAP3K14/NIK followed by IKK-alpha and IKK-beta. Component of the RNA polymerase II elongator complex (Elongator), which consists of IKBKAP/ELP1, STIP1/ELP2, ELP3, ELP4, and two yet unidentified proteins, p30 and p38. Elongator associates with the C-terminal domain (CTD) of Pol II largest subunit. Interacts with ELP3. Belongs to the ELP1/IKA1 family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
