Nuclear translocation of RelA in stimulated macrophages

19 Nov 2019

As critical components of the innate immune system, macrophages respond to microbes by recognizing molecules, such as the gram-negative bacteria product lipopolysaccharide (LPS), via Toll-like receptors. Receptor activation stimulates a complex signaling network that involves, among others, the NF-κB pathway. Here we quantitate the nuclear translocation of the protein RelA, a component of the NF-κB transcription factor complex, in macrophages using image-based analysis.
