Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat IKK alpha by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line, Rat‑2 rat embryonic fibroblast cell line, and U937 human histiocytic lymphoma cell lines. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat IKK alpha Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3768) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for IKK alpha at approximately 85 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
IKK alpha in HCT‑116 Human Cell Line. IKK alpha was detected in immersion fixed HCT‑116 human colorectal carcinoma cell line using Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat IKK alpha Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3768) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasmic. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Background: IKK alpha
I kappa B kinase alpha (IKK alpha ) is also known as IKBKA, CHUK, and IKK1. The classical active IKK complex, composed of IKK alpha, IKK beta, and two forms of processed IKK gamma, phosphorylates and inactivates I kappa B, resulting in the release and nuclear translocation of active NF-kappa B. IKK alpha contains kinase, leucine zipper, and helix-loop-helix domains, and heterodimerizes with IKK beta. NF-kappa B-inducing kinase (NIK) phosphorylates and activates IKK alpha.
