Abstract: Motivation: Inhibition of NFkB pathway is known to promote apoptosis and therefore may constitute one of the goals in anticancer therapies. Experimental results show that heat shock induces such inhibition in cancer cells. However, the mechanisms of interactions between heat shock and NFkB pathways are not fully understood yet. Development of a combined mathematical model of these pathways and its subsequent computational analysis should help to uncover these mechanisms and determine the time window in which heat shock treatment preceding chemotherapy would be the most efficient. Results: An original mathematical model has been developed, allowing for computational testing of various hypotheses concerning main sources of interplay between HSF and NFkB pathways. Computational analysis strongly suggests that the competition for IKK, known from literature, cannot be the only mechanism. Two plausible hypotheses are that either a kinase activating IKK can misfold due to heat shock or that heat shock affects TNF receptors, blocking activation of NFkB pathway at the cell membrane.
