Abstract

Background: Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 5A (eIF5A) regulates pancreatic cancer pathogenesis. Results: eIF5A was shown to control the expression of a set of key signaling molecules including RhoA and ROCK2, and to promote the invasive potential of pancreatic cancer cells. Conclusion: Hypusine/eIF5A/RhoA/ROCK cascade promotes pancreatic cancer cell metastasis. Significance: eIF5A may be a novel druggable target to treat metastatic pancreatic cancer.
