Oncogenes modulate cell sensitivity to apoptosis induced by glucose deprivation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Increased glucose uptake is characteristic of many tumours and transformed cells and, consequently, glucose deprivation would be expected to differentially affect cancer cell survival and growth. In this study we investigated whether specific oncogenes sensitise cells to apoptosis induced by glucose deprivation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Oncogene… (More)
