CHAPTER 3 Receptors and Adaptors for N F - K B Signaling ShaO'Cong Sun* and Edward W. Harhaj C ells communicate with their environment via various surface receptors that recognize specific molecules (ligands) present in the extracellular environment. Upon binding to a specific ligand, the receptors transduce signals into the cell, triggering multiple intracellular signaling cascades that lead to gene expression and other biochemical events involved in specific cellular fimaions. The signaling pathway that leads to activation of the transcription factor NF-KB has drawn much attention, since it regulates diverse biological processes such as immune and inflammatory responses, cell growth and survival, and tumorigenesis.

IKKa and Noncanonical Pathway for NF-KB Activadon In addition to the canonical N F - K B aaivation pathway that is mostly dependent upon IKKy-reeulated IKKP activation, IKB phosphorylation and degradation, and then N F - K B activation, ^ there are at least two situations in which N F - K B activation was reported to depend only on IKKa (Fig. 3). ^ Ligation of die LTpR (LTp receptor) or Blys receptor (BR3) leads to NIK (NF-KB-inducing kinase) activation which in turn phosphorylates IKKa and thereby aaivates N F - K B by phosphorylating pi00 and causing the release of p50:RelB dimers.
