The mouse NF-κB subunit p65 ELISA kit is suitable for the quantitative determination of mouse p65 in different sample types, including serum, plasma, and tissue homogenates. This assay employs the bi-antibody sandwich technique and enzyme-substrate chromogenic reaction to quantify antigen levels in the sample. The amount of synthesized colored products is positively related to the analyte of interest in the sample.

p65, also called RELA, is a member of the NF-κB family of transcriptional regulatory proteins that works as the activating component of the p65/p50 heterodimer. It plays an essential role in cell survival as p65-deficient mice do not survive. Nuclear translocation of the p65/p50 heterodimer is essential for NF-κB signaling. On activation of TNFR1, the TRAF2/5 activates the IKK complex, resulting in IκBα phosphorylation and subsequent ubiquitin-dependent proteasomal degradation. This relieves the NF-κB p65/p50 heterodimer from cytosolic retention, leading to nuclear translocation and target gene activation. Acetylation of p65 affects its biological function. Acetylation on lysine residue 221 is crucial for DNA binding and for inhibiting the interaction between p65 and IκBα.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
NF-kappa-B is a pleiotropic transcription factor present in almost all cell types and is the endpoint of a series of signal transduction events that are initiated by a vast array of stimuli related to many biological processes such as inflammation, immunity, differentiation, cell growth, tumorigenesis and apoptosis. NF-kappa-B is a homo- or heterodimeric complex formed by the Rel-like domain-containing proteins RELA/p65, RELB, NFKB1/p105, NFKB1/p50, REL and NFKB2/p52. The heterodimeric RELA-NFKB1 complex appears to be most abundant one. The dimers bind at kappa-B sites in the DNA of their target genes and the individual dimers have distinct preferences for different kappa-B sites that they can bind with distinguishable affinity and specificity. Different dimer combinations act as transcriptional activators or repressors, respectively. The NF-kappa-B heterodimeric RELA-NFKB1 and RELA-REL complexes, for instance, function as transcriptional activators. NF-kappa-B is controlled by various mechanisms of post-translational modification and subcellular compartmentalization as well as by interactions with other cofactors or corepressors. NF-kappa-B complexes are held in the cytoplasm in an inactive state complexed with members of the NF-kappa-B inhibitor (I-kappa-B) family. In a conventional activation pathway, I-kappa-B is phosphorylated by I-kappa-B kinases (IKKs) in response to different activators, subsequently degraded thus liberating the active NF-kappa-B complex which translocates to the nucleus. The inhibitory effect of I-kappa-B on NF-kappa-B through retention in the cytoplasm is exerted primarily through the interaction with RELA. RELA shows a weak DNA-binding site which could contribute directly to DNA binding in the NF-kappa-B complex. Beside its activity as a direct transcriptional activator, it is also able to modulate promoters accessibility to transcription factors and thereby indirectly regulate gene expression. Associates with chromatin at the NF-kappa-B promoter region via association with DDX1. Essential for cytokine gene expression in T-cells. The NF-kappa-B homodimeric RELA-RELA complex appears to be involved in invasin-mediated activation of IL-8 expression.
