Mutations in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are frequent in cancers but it is not yet clearly established whether they are modifier events involved in cancer progression or whether they are a consequence of tumorigenesis. Here we show a benign tumor type in which mtDNA mutations that lead to complex I (CI) enzyme deficiency are found in all tumors and are the(More)
Hypoxia has been suspected to trigger transdifferentiation of renal tubular cells into myofibroblasts in an epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process. To determine the functional networks potentially altered by hypoxia, rat renal tubule suspensions were incubated under three conditions of oxygenation ranging from normoxia (lactate uptake) to severe(More)
A natural antisense transcript (aHIF), which sequence is strictly complementary to the 3' untranslated region (3'UTR) of HIF-1alpha mRNA, has been identified in human and shown to be overexpressed in renal carcinomas. We searched for aHIF in different rodent tissues. Two candidate expressed sequence tag (EST) were identified in silico and their PCR products(More)
More than 50 years ago, Warburg proposed that the shift in glucose metabolism from oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) to glycolysis occurring in spite of an adequate oxygen supply was at the root of cancer. This hypothesis often disregarded over the following years has recently stirred up much interest due to progress made in cancer genetics and proteomics.(More)
As glucose is a mandatory nutrient for cell proliferation and renewal, it is suspected that glucose microenvironment is sensed by all cell types to regulate angiogenesis. Several glucose-sensing components have been partially described to respond to high glucose levels. However, little is known about the response to low glucose. Here, we used(More)
