Validating survivin as a cancer therapeutic target

  title={Validating survivin as a cancer therapeutic target},
  author={Dario C. Altieri},
  journal={Nature Reviews Cancer},
Acquisition of the ability to evade cellular suicide, or apoptosis, is one of the master switches that contributes to cellular transformation and, ultimately, to invasive cancer. Much has been learned about the molecular organization of apoptotic pathways and their regulators, but the identification and validation of translational targets for apoptosis-based cancer therapy has posed a great challenge. Survivin is an attractive candidate for cancer therapy, so what is its potential applicability… CONTINUE READING
