Cancer Metabolism: Molecular Targeting and Implications for Therapy

Subject

Cancer Metabolism

Description

“Metabolic reprogramming” is one of the hallmarks of cancer, and is exemplified by distinctive biochemical alterations which include enhanced glucose uptake, aerobic glycolysis and glutamine-metabolism. Clinically, the prominent feature of altered metabolism, (i.e.) rapid glucose utilization, has already been exploited to diagnose majority of solid malignancies using PET/CT imaging. In the light of recent research it has become evident that cancer-specific metabolic shift complements pro-survival and anti-apoptotic events during unfavorable conditions such as nutrient-deprivation and therapeutic challenges.
