Background: Arsenic induced cell transformation and carcinogenesis. Results: Arsenic-transformed cells have the property of apoptosis/autophagy resistance. Conclusion: The constitutive activation of Nrf2 in arsenic-transformed cells up-regulates antioxidants, decreases ROS generation, and causes apoptosis resistance and tumorigenesis. Significance: Antioncogenic role of inducible Nrf2 in normal cells and oncogenic role of constitutive activation of Nfr2 in cancer cells may increase our understanding of the mechanism of arsenic carcinogenesis and its prevention.
