Targeting transcription factors for therapeutic benefit

Brennan, Paul, Donev, Rossen Mintchev and Hewamana, Saman 2008. Targeting transcription factors for therapeutic benefit. Molecular Biosystems 4 (9) , pp. 909-919. 10.1039/b801920g

Transcription factors are a large class of biological molecules that are important for health and disease. Despite that there are challenges to targeting them therapeutically and most approaches alter their activity indirectly. Research at the chemical biology interface has led to the development of new ways of targeting transcription factors including blocking transcription factor dimerisation, targeting specific DNA sequences and DNA decoys. This review discusses these issues with a view to inspiring the development of new agents that could be useful for the treatment of cancer.
