Latest Warburg effect Stories
One way to tackle a tumor is to take aim at the metabolic reactions that fuel their growth.
Researchers at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson have identified cancer cell mitochondria as the unsuspecting powerhouse and "Achilles' heel" of tumor growth, opening up the door for new therapeutic targets in breast cancer and other tumor types.
It's long been known that cancer cells eat a lot of sugar to stay alive.
Research published in the Cancer Cell journal in March was a significant step in knowing the causes of cancer better, especially breast cancer, revealing that the lack or loss of a protein in the cells known as SIRT3, induces the proliferation of this disease and thereby, this protein can be an may be a therapeutic target in the development of effective therapies for cancer.
Understanding and overcoming â€˜the Warburg Effectâ€™.
MIT chemists have developed a new platinum compound that is as powerful as the commonly used anticancer drug cisplatin but better able to destroy tumor cells.
The pedal-to-the-metal signals driving the growth of several types of cancer cells lead to a common switch governing the use of glucose, researchers at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University have discovered.
Researchers have fresh insight into an evolutionarily ancient way that cells cope when oxygen levels decline, according to a new study in the October 7th issue of Cell Metabolism, a Cell Press publication. In studies of cells taken from the lining of human pulmonary arteries, they show that a microRNA â€“ a tiny bit of RNA that regulates the activity of particular genes and thus the availability of certain proteins â€“ allows cells to shift their metabolic gears, in a process known...
In preclinical studies, researchers in Texas found a novel cancer drug reduces growth of neuroblastoma -- a rare childhood brain cancer -- by 75 percent. Dr. Alejandro Levy, a fellow at the Children's Cancer Hospital at M. D.
