Inhibition of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Kinase as a Therapeutic Strategy against Cancer.

Cancer cells alter their metabolism to support the uninterrupted supply of biosynthetic molecules required for continuous proliferation. Glucose metabolism is frequently reprogrammed in several tumors in addition to fatty acid, amino acid and glutamine metabolism. Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Kinase (PDK) is a gatekeeper enzyme involved in altered glucose… CONTINUE READING
