Detection of Human/Mouse IkB-alpha by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of NIH‑3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line, DA3 mouse myeloma cell line, LNCaP human prostate cancer cell line, and Daudi human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.1 µg/mL of Human/Mouse IkB-alpha Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4299) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for IkB-alpha at approximately 42 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

NF kappa B inhibitor alpha (IkB-alpha ) inhibits the NF kappa B complex by binding and sequestering it in the cytoplasm. Upon stimulation, IkB-alpha is phosphorylated on serine residues marking it for degradation by the ubiquitin pathway. Following IkB-alpha degradation, the NF kappa B complex is able to translocate to the nucleus and activate transcription.
