I found it quite interesting that mutations in multiple myeloma are located in the genes involved in NFkB pathway. This chain of events in the cell activates as a response to various kinds of stress, such as cytokines, free radicals, ultraviolet irradiation and other stressors. NFkB is a transcription factor which is responsible for activating genes linked to increased inflammation. Multiple myeloma genome sequencing revealed that this molecular pathway is altered. So apparently there’s a link between the aberrant activity of NFkB and cancer, and I would like to point out that there’s probably a link to aging as well. It is most likely that inhibition of this pathway may lead to cancer incidence reduction and also anti-aging effects. It has already been shown that pharmacological blocking of NFkB pathway prolongs lifespan in drosophila. Read the paper by Dr.Alexey Moskalev who’s done this experiment.
