Abstract

Transcription factors are proteins that regulate gene expression by modulating the synthesis of messenger RNA. Since this process is often one dominant control point in the production of many proteins, transcription factors represent the key regulators of numerous cellular functions, including proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. Pancreatic cancer progression is characterised by activation of inflammatory signalling pathways converging on a limited set of transcription factors that fine-tune gene expression patterns contributing to the growth and maintenance of these tumours. Thus strategies targeting these transcriptional networks activated in pancreatic cancer cells could block the effects of upstream inflammatory responses participating in pancreatic tumorigenesis. The authors review this field of research and summarise current strategies for targeting oncogenic transcription factors and their activating signalling networks in the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
