Activation by IKKalpha of a Second, Evolutionary Conserved, NF-kappa B Signaling Pathway

Uwe Senftleben,12 Yixue Cao,1 Gutian Xiao,3 Florian R. Greten,1 Gertraud Krähn,14 Giuseppina Bonizzi,1 Yi Chen,1 Yinling Hu,1 Abraham Fong,3 Shao-Cong Sun,3 Michael Karin1*

In mammals, the canonical nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappa B) signaling pathway activated in response to infections is based on degradation of Ikappa B inhibitors. This pathway depends on the Ikappa B kinase (IKK), which contains two catalytic subunits, IKKalpha and IKKbeta . IKKbeta is essential for inducible Ikappa B phosphorylation and degradation, whereas IKKalpha is not. Here we show that IKKalpha is required for B cell maturation, formation of secondary lymphoid organs, increased expression of certain NF-kappa B target genes, and processing of the NF-kappa B2 (p100) precursor. IKKalpha preferentially phosphorylates NF-kappa B2, and this activity requires its phosphorylation by upstream kinases, one of which may be NF-kappa B-inducing kinase (NIK). IKKalpha is therefore a pivotal component of a second NF-kappa B activation pathway based on regulated NF-kappa B2 processing rather than Ikappa B degradation.
