NFkB-p105 a subunit of NF-kappa-B transcription complex (NFkB), which plays a crucial role in biological processes such as inflammation, immunity, differentiation, cell growth, tumorigenesis and apoptosis. NFkB consists of homo- or heterodimeric complexes formed from the five NFkB proteins in mammals: RelA, RelB, c-REL, NFkB1, and NFkB2. They form a variety of homodimers and heterodimers, each binding at kappa-B sites in the DNA, regulating distinct sets of genes. Different dimer combinations act as transcriptional activators or repressors. NFkB1-p105 is processed into the shorter form NFkB1-p50 either cotranslationally or posttranslationally. p50/RelA and p50/RelB heterodimers are transcriptional activators. p50 homodimers are transcriptional repressor, but can act as a transcriptional activators when associated with BCL3. p50 binds to the kappa-B consensus sequence in enhancer region of genes involved in immune response and acute phase reactions. NFKB1-p105 binds Cot, inhibiting Cot-induced MAPK signaling; active Cot is released by proteasome-dependent degradation of p105. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
