for Recombinant IKKe proteinBackground

IKKε (Inhibitor Of Nuclear Factor Kappa B Kinase Subunit Epsilon, also known as IKBKE), is a noncanonical I-kappa-B kinase (IKK) that is essential for regulating antiviral signaling pathways. It’s a serine/threonine kinase that plays an essential role in regulating inflammatory responses to viral infection, through the activation of the type I IFN, NF-kappa-B and STAT signaling. It also involves in TNFα and inflammatory cytokines, like Interleukin-1, signaling. Following activation of viral RNA sensors, such as RIG-I-like receptors, IKKε associates with DDX3X and phosphorylates interferon regulatory factors (IRFs), IRF3 and IRF7, as well as DDX3X. This activity allows subsequent homodimerization and nuclear translocation of the IRF3 leading to transcriptional activation of pro-inflammatory and antiviral genes including IFNβ. In order to establish such an antiviral state, IKKε forms several different complexes whose composition depends on the type of cell and cellular stimuli. Thus, several scaffolding molecules including IPS1/MAVS, TANK, AZI2/NAP1 or TBKBP1/SINTBAD can be recruited to the IKKε-containing-complexes. It can be activated by polyubiquitination in response to TNF&alpha and interleukin-1, regulate the NF-kappa-B signaling pathway through, at least, the phosphorylation of CYLD. It can phosphorylate inhibitors of NF-kappa-B thus leading to the dissociation of the inhibitor/NF-kappa-B complex and ultimately the degradation of the inhibitor. In addition, IKKε is also required for the induction of a subset of ISGs which displays antiviral activity, may be through the phosphorylation of STAT1 at Ser-708. Phosphorylation of STAT1 at Ser- 708 seems also to promote the assembly and DNA binding of ISGF3 (STAT1:STAT2:IRF9) complexes compared to GAF (STAT1:STAT1) complexes, in this way regulating the balance between type I and type II IFN responses.
