Breast cancer cells use new signaling pathway to cope with lack of oxygen levels inside tumors

Researchers have identified a new signaling pathway that helps cancer cells cope with the lack of oxygen found inside tumors. These are the results of a study published in Nature Cell Biology on June 20, and led by researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center and its Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center, Princess Margaret Cancer Center, the University of Toronto, Harvard Medical School and Oxford University.

Combining 2-DG with fenofibrate could provide non-toxic treatments for many cancers

A team of researchers at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine recently discovered a novel, non-toxic approach to treating a wide variety of cancers. [More]
Real-time intracellular oxygen assay

Real-time intracellular oxygen assay

AMSBIO has introduced MitoXpress® Intra, a novel intracellular oxygen assay based on a 96 or 384-well fluorescence plate reader-based approach that facilitates the real-time assessment of transient changes in cell respiration, oxygen gradients and physiological responses across a range of cell models.

Researchers report tumors can continue to grow even without supply of new blood vessels

Researchers report tumors can continue to grow even without supply of new blood vessels

When medication is used to shut off the oxygen supply to tumor cells, the cells adapt their metabolism in the medium term -- by switching over to producing energy without oxygen. This observation by biomedical scientists at the University of Basel and University Hospital Basel could be used for treatments that can inhibit tumor growth in the long term, as the researchers report in the latest issue of the journal Cell Reports.

Bacteria uses sensitive, nano-sized pump to transport magnesium

Bacteria uses sensitive, nano-sized pump to transport magnesium

Researchers at UiO and NCMM have discovered that the system used by bacteria to transport magnesium is so sensitive that it can detect a pinch of magnesium salt in a swimming pool. [More]
PKM2 enzyme plays major role in early steps of wound healing

PKM2 enzyme plays major role in early steps of wound healing

An enzyme involved in glucose metabolism in cells plays a major role in the early steps of wound healing, a finding that could lead to new therapeutic approaches for wound care, according to researchers at Georgia State University. [More]
Scientists discover novel drug candidate to treat breast cancer, lung cancer and melanoma

Scientists discover novel drug candidate to treat breast cancer, lung cancer and melanoma

Using a new approach, scientists at The Scripps Research Institute and collaborating institutions have discovered a novel drug candidate that could be used to treat certain types of breast cancer, lung cancer and melanoma. [More]
Study provides critical insight into Warburg effect

Study provides critical insight into Warburg effect

PGK1, a glycolytic enzyme, has been found to play a role in coordinating cellular processes crucial to cancer metabolism and brain tumor formation, according to results published in today's online issue of Molecular Cell. The findings may lay the groundwork for improved approaches to diagnosis and treatment of glioblastoma and other cancers. [More]
Findings suggest potential metabolic pathway against cancer

Findings suggest potential metabolic pathway against cancer

When cancer cells compete with immune cells for glucose, the cancer wins. As a result, the immune T cells are not healthy and don't have the weapons to kill the cancer. [More]
NS1 protein can be considered as vital target for development of new drugs to treat dengue: Study

NS1 protein can be considered as vital target for development of new drugs to treat dengue: Study

Dengue is a mosquito-borne tropical disease currently endemic in more than 10 countries. According to the World Health Organization, 390 million people are infected by dengue every year. [More]
Study shows link between impaired mitochondria, energy failure, and neuronal dysfunction

Study shows link between impaired mitochondria, energy failure, and neuronal dysfunction

A new study from the Gladstone Institutes shows for the first time that impairments in mitochondria--the brain's cellular power plants--can deplete cellular energy levels and cause neuronal dysfunction in a model of neurodegenerative disease. [More]
Diabetes drug 'suffocates' pancreatic cancer stem cells, new study finds

Diabetes drug 'suffocates' pancreatic cancer stem cells, new study finds

A new study shows that pancreatic cancer stem cells (PancSCs) are virtually addicted to oxygen-based metabolism, and could be "suffocated" with a drug already used to treat diabetes. [More]
Treating cancer cells with quizartinib inhibits key metabolic pathway, activates macroautophagy

Treating cancer cells with quizartinib inhibits key metabolic pathway, activates macroautophagy

A study published in The Journal of Cell Biology describes a way to force cancer cells to destroy a key metabolic enzyme they need to survive. [More]
Defects in mitochondria play key role in transition of normal cells to cancerous cells

Defects in mitochondria play key role in transition of normal cells to cancerous cells

Cancer cells defy the rules by which normal cells abide. They can divide without cease, invade distant tissues and consume glucose at abnormal rates. [More]
Tests reveal that FY26 cancer drug is 49 times more potent than Cisplatin drug

Tests reveal that FY26 cancer drug is 49 times more potent than Cisplatin drug

Tests have shown that a new cancer drug, FY26, is 49 times more potent than the clinically used treatment Cisplatin. [More]
SLU researchers find way to stop growth of cancer cells by targeting the Warburg Effect

SLU researchers find way to stop growth of cancer cells by targeting the Warburg Effect

In research published in Cancer Cell, Thomas Burris, Ph.D., chair of pharmacology and physiology at Saint Louis University, has, for the first time, found a way to stop cancer cell growth by targeting the Warburg Effect, a trait of cancer cell metabolism that scientists have been eager to exploit.

High fructose consumption can lead to uncontrolled growth of cardiomyocytes, heart attack

High fructose consumption can lead to uncontrolled growth of cardiomyocytes, heart attack

'Walk through any supermarket and take a look at the labels on food products, and you'll see that many of them contain fructose, often in the form of sucrose (table sugar)' -- that's how Wilhelm Krek, professor for cell biology at ETH Zurich's Institute for Molecular Health Sciences, summarises the problem with today's nutrition.
