Over the years, studies have focused on the transcriptional regulation of oncogenesis. More recently, a growing emphasis has been placed on translational control. The Ras and Akt signal transduction pathways play a critical role in regulating mRNA translation and cellular transformation. The question arises: How might the Ras and Akt signaling pathways affect translation and mediate transformation? These pathways converge on a crucial effector of translation, the initiation factor eIF4E, which… CONTINUE READING
