|Description: Transcription factor p65 (Nuclear factor NF-kappa-B p65 subunit).|
Ensembl ID: ENSG00000173039
UniprotKB/SwissProt: TF65_HUMAN (Q04206)
Function: p65 is a subunit of the nuclear factor kappa-B, a second messenger, which activates the transcription of a number of genes in multiple tissues. The inhibitory effect of I-kappa-B upon NF- kappa-B in the cytoplasm is exerted primarily through the interaction with p65. p65 shows a weak DNA-binding site which could contribute directly to DNA binding in the NF-kappa-B complex.
