Here we review recent proteomics results that have elucidated new aspects of the roles and regulation of signal transduction pathways in cancer using the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), ERK and breakpoint cluster region (BCR)–ABL1 networks as examples. The emerging theme is to understand cancer signalling as networks of multiprotein machines which process information in a highly dynamic environment that is shaped by changing protein interactions and post-translational modifications (PTMs). Cancerous genetic mutations derange these protein networks in complex ways that are tractable by proteomics.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Nature Publishing Group||Copyright (published version):||2010 Nature Publishing Group||Keywords:||Functional proteomics;signal transduction pathways;cancer;epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR);ERK;breakpoint cluster region (BCR)–ABL1||DOI:||10.1038/nrc2900||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
