ERK and MDM2 prey on FOXO3a

Nature Cell Biology volume 10, pages 125126 (2008) | Download Citation

Subjects

Constitutively active ERK signalling stimulates cell proliferation, thereby contributing to tumorigenesis. We now learn that ERK activity induces phosphorylation and MDM2-mediated degradation of the tumour-suppressing transcription factor FOXO3a, thus gaining new information on valuable targets for human cancer therapeutic intervention.
