The abundance of AP-1 subunits is regulated on several levels: transcription, mRNA turnover, protein turnover by the ubiquitination/proteasome pathway (4). 4. 1. Promoter Regulation of c-jun and c-fos Given the aspects of subunit heterogeneity, their dimerization and DNA binding rules, the control of transcription of AP-1 subunit genes, the time course of subunit synthesis, and the regulation of their function become important issues for an evaluation of the effect on target gene expression and on dependent phenotypes.

WHAT TO EXPECT IF SUCCESSFUL? One key assumption underlying any attempt to target Myc proteins is that transformation is reversible. Clearly, if Myc were a runaway oncogene triggering irreversible changes when activated even briefly, then any attempt to interfere with its function at later stages in tumorigenesis would be futile. From experiments in tissue culture, it is not entirely clear what to expect. In established cell lines, induction of proliferation and transformation are reversible if analyzed using a MycER gene (51).
