3. Transcription Factor Interactions One of the most important concepts to have emerged is that transcription factors may interact with other transcription factors. This then allows crosstalk between different signal transduction pathways at the level of gene expression [6]. Indeed, it is the interaction of transcription factors that may give them different properties in different cell types, because the presence of other transcription factors will profoundly influence the effect exerted by a particular factor on gene expression.

With the Human Genome Project progressing rapidly, it is easy to foresee combined linkage and sequence data allowing the rapid identification of genes at a peak of linkage. Gene identification is only the start of the long path to drug therapy, because there is still a formidable amount of work to do to move from each gene sequence to the clarification of its role in the development of asthma. 6. Conclusions The genetic basis for asthma is gradually becoming more certain; the methodological tools for finding genetic linkage and association are now established, and it is likely that all the important genes and their variants will be found in the next 10 years.
