BAFF-R-dependent activation of the alternative NF-kappaB pathway plays an essential role in mature B cell survival. Mutations leading to overexpression of NIK and deletion of the TRAF3 gene are implicated in human multiple myeloma. We show that overexpression of NIK in mouse B lymphocytes amplifies alternative NF-kappaB activation and peripheral B cell numbers in a BAFF-R-dependent manner, whereas uncoupling NIK from TRAF3-mediated control causes maximal p100 processing and dramatic hyperplasia of BAFF-R-independent B cells. NIK controls alternative NF-kappaB signaling by increasing the protein levels of its negative regulator TRAF3 in a dose-dependent fashion. This mechanism keeps NIK protein levels below detection even when they cause B cell hyperplasia, so that contributions of NIK to B cell pathologies can easily be overlooked.
