Forward and reverse genetic experiments have both played important roles in revealing critical aspects of mammalian signal transduction pathways in cell culture experiments. Only recently have we begun to comprehend the depth, breadth, and complexity of these pathways and of their interrelationships. Here, we summarize successful examples in which different forward genetic approaches have led to novel discoveries in NF-kappaB signaling. We believe that forward genetics will continue to play an irreplaceable role in advancing our understanding of the complexities of the pathways that regulate the functions of this key transcription factor.
