Transcription factors are key regulators of the pattern of gene expression in a cell and directly control central processes such as proliferation, survival, self-renewal, and invasion. Alterations in the mechanisms that normally control these functions can lead to hematological malignancies. This chapter will describe the highlights of the main transcription factors in hematological malignancies.
