NF-κB is a master transcriptional regulator of inflammation that plays an important role in oncogenesis, particularly in tumors that arise in the context of inflammation. Copper metabolism MURR1 domain-containing 1 (COMMD1) is a negative regulator of NF-κB. Recent genetic-based studies in both mice and human patients indicate that COMMD1 has an important role in controlling intestinal inflammation and constraining progression to colitis-associated cancer.
