Interaction between metals and stress signaling pathways,  such as heat shock response or NF-κB signaling, can  enhance cell survival and tolerance through a unified  response system. Elucidating the interactions between Metal  Transcription Factor 1 (MTF-1) and cell stress response  mechanisms is critical to a comprehensive understanding of  metal-based cellular effects.
