Enhancers regulate lineage choice and the developmental timing of antigen receptor gene rearrangements. The transcription factor NF-κB has been implicated as a key component of the recombination and transcription activation potential of the immunoglobulin κ chain gene intronic enhancer. Here, I discuss the implications of the new observation that an NF-κB binding site-mutated enhancer in the correct biological context does not appear to affect κ gene expression.
