The molecular mechanisms underpinning the process of endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EndMT) are mostly unknown. Recently Xiong and colleagues explored for the first time the metabolic changes associated with the activation of the mesenchymal program in endothelial cells, and found that reprogramming of fatty acid oxidation pivotally regulates EndMT.
