Definition

Viral protein involved in the activation of host NF-kappa-B. This protein is a pleiotropic transcription factor which is present in almost all cell types and is involved in many biological processed such as inflammation, immunity, differentiation, cell growth, tumorigenesis and apoptosis. Several viruses have developed strategies to activate the NF-kappa-B pathway in order to promote viral replication and prevent virus-induced apoptosis.
