a transcription factor of the nuclear factor-kappaB ( NFkB) group. Precursor of the p52 subunit of the nuclear factor NF-kappa-B, which binds to the kappa-B consensus sequence 5'-GGRNNYYCC-3', located in the enhancer region of genes involved in immune response and acute phase reactions. The precursor protein itself does not bind to DNA. LT-beta receptor agonists and LPS induce NF-kappaB/p100 processing to p52 at the level of the ribosome. 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. Two spliced isoforms have been identified. Isoform p49 is a subunit of the NF-kappa-B protein complex, which stimulates the HIV enhancer in synergy with p65. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
