Metabolic adaptation is essential for cell survival during nutrient deprivation. We report that eukaryotic elongation factor 2 kinase (eEF2K), which is activated by AMP-kinase (AMPK), confers cell survival under acute nutrient depletion by blocking translation elongation. Tumor cells exploit this pathway to adapt to nutrient deprivation by reactivating the(More)
The passage of genetic information during meiosis requires exceptionally high fidelity to prevent birth defects and infertility. Accurate chromosome segregation during the first meiotic division relies on the formation of crossovers between homologous chromosomes and a series of precisely controlled steps to exchange genetic information. Many studies have(More)
