Ferroptosis is an iron-dependent, nonapoptotic form of regulatory death and has received extensive attention. Fenton reaction related to iron metabolism release high levels of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), and the intracellular ROS content is closely related to various diseases; the iron ion concentration in many diseased cells is also disordered. In this paper, the advances in ferroptosis research are summarized, and the regulatory mechanisms of ferroptosis, including inducers and regulatory protein of ferroptosis in cancer progression. We expect that this study will benefit the further development of basic research and clinical application of ferroptosis for cancer treatment.

Keywords: Ferroptosis, ROS, cancer progression, system Xc-, GPX4, cell death.
