Objective: Several gene alterations have been identified associated with ovarian cancer (OC) development. However, how these genetic elements are coordinated in transcription network during OC initiation and progression is poorly understood. Thus, the objective of this study was to interpret the transcription regulation network of OC. Materials and Methods: The GSE14407 microarray data was used for analysis of the transcription regulation network of OC. Results: The results showed that the TP53 (tumor protein p53) was the most crucial transcription factor in the transcriptome network. P53 could down-regulate CDC14A (CDC14 cell division cycle 14 homolog A [S. cerevisiae]) and FAS (TNF receptor superfamily, member 6) expression, but up-regulate SFN (stratifin) and THBS1 (thrombospondin 1) expression to involve in pathways in cancer, cell cycle, p53 signaling pathway, and apoptosis pathway. Conclusion: This transcriptional regulation may provide a better understanding of molecular mechanism and some potential therapeutic targets in the treatment of OC.
