Feedback loops attenuate or amplify signals, change the network dynamics and modify the input-output relationships between the signal and the target. Negative feedback provides robustness to noise and adaptation to perturbations, but as a double-edged sword can prevent effective pathway inhibition by a drug. Positive feedback brings about switch-like network responses and can convert analog input signals into digital outputs, triggering cell fate decisions and phenotypic changes. We show how a multitude of protein-protein interactions creates hidden feedback loops in signal transduction cascades. Drug treatments that interfere with feedback regulation can cause unexpected adverse effects. Combinatorial molecular interactions generated by pathway crosstalk and feedback loops often bypass the block caused by targeted therapies against oncogenic mutated kinases. We discuss mechanisms of drug resistance caused by network adaptations and suggest that development of effective drug combinations requires understanding of how feedback loops modulate drug responses.||Funding Details:||European Commission - Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Seminars in Cell & Developmental Biology||Volume:||50||Start page:||85||End page:||94||Copyright (published version):||2015 Elsevier||Keywords:||Drug resistance; Signal transduction; Network dynamics; Feedback regulation; Mathematical modelling; Network analysis; Systems stability||DOI:||10.1016/j.semcdb.2015.09.024||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
