Cancer stem cells display an epithelial-mesenchymal transition phenotype and are resistant to current therapies. In this issue of Cancer Cell, Dong and colleagues demonstrate that these phenotypes in basal-like breast cancer are promoted by a metabolic switch to glucose metabolism, resulting in decreased reactive oxygen species levels.
