The transcription factor NF-kappaB is commonly activated upon virus infection and a key player in the induction and regulation of the host immune response. The present study demonstrated for the first time that porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2), which is the primary causative agent of an emerging swine disease, postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome, can activate NF-kappaB in PCV2-infected PK15 cells. In PCV2-infected cells, NF-kappaB was activated concomitantly with viral replication, which was characterized by increased DNA binding activity, translocation of NF-kappaB p65 from the cytoplasm to the nucleus, as well as degradation and phosphorylation of Ikapp...
