Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells anywhere in a body, ELK1 and ELK3 is a member of the Ets-domain transcription factor family and the TCF (Ternary Complex Factor) subfamily. Proteins in this subfamily regulate transcription when recruited by SRF (Serum Response Factor) to bind to serum response elements. ELK1 and ELK3 transcription factors are known as oncogenes. Both transcription factors are proliferated in a different of type of cancer. Herein, we summarized the expression of transcription factor ELK1 and ELK3 in cancer cells.
