NIK/MAP3K14 in Human Pancreas. NIK/MAP3K14 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human pancreas using Mouse Anti-Human NIK/MAP3K14 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6888) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to pancreatic islets.

NIK (NF kappa B inducing kinase), also called MAP3K14, is a widely expressed 947 amino acid (aa), ~100 kDa cytoplasmic protein of the MAP kinase family. NIK participates in a non-canonical NFkB signaling cascade in which its activity and expression are elevated by TNF and related ligands. NIK activates IKKa/b, which releases NFkB subunits for translocation to the nucleus. Within the region used as an immunogen, human NIK shares 94% and 95% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat NIK, respectively.
