REL (human)

REL a proto-oncogenic transcription factor of the nuclear factor-kappaB (NFkB) group. There are five NFkB proteins in mammals (RelA/NFkB-p65, RelB, c-Rel, NF-_B1/NFkB-p105, and NF-_B2/NFkB-p100). They form a variety of homodimers and heterodimers, each of which activates its own characteristic set of genes. May play a role in differentiation and lymphopoiesis. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
