The activation of oncogenic transcription factors (NF-κB, STAT3, STAT5, AP-1, etc.) and proteins (Ras, Raf, Src, etc.) plays an important role in tumorigenesis. The mechanisms(s) regulating the activation of these transcription factors and proteins are complex and constantly evolving. The current issue will explore in detail the role of oncogenic transcription factors/proteins in carcinogenesis and highlight novel pharmacological strategies that can be evolved to target them and subsequently mitigate the processes of abnormal proliferation and survival of tumor cells.
