Interest in the topic of tumour metabolism has waxed and waned over the past century of cancer research. The early observations of Warburg and his contemporaries established that there are fundamental differences in the central metabolic pathways operating in malignant tissue. However, the initial hypotheses that were based on these observations proved inadequate to explain tumorigenesis, and the oncogene revolution pushed tumour metabolism to the margins of cancer research. In recent years… Expand
The current state of cancer metabolism
TLDR
Findings during the past two decades have once again highlighted that changes to metabolic processes are required for cells to escape from their defined roles as integrated parts of a tissue and organ system, and become an independent clone of cells that manifests itself as malignant disease. Expand
Principles of the Warburg effect and cancer cell metabolism
TLDR
The widespread recognition of the complex interplay between genetic alterations, cellular metabolism, and the tumor microenvironment could establish a framework for exploitable cancer therapies and potential targets of therapeutic intervention. Expand
Targeting Altered Metabolism—Emerging Cancer Therapeutic Strategies
TLDR
This chapter discusses the new understandings in cancer metabolism and the inhibitors being developed, which added new theoretical paradigms and new drug target proteins to the strategies for cancer therapy. Expand
New aspects of the Warburg effect in cancer cell biology.
TLDR
The goals of this review are to provide an organized snapshot of the current understanding of regulatory mechanisms important for Warburg effect and its role in tumor biology. Expand
How cancer metabolism is tuned for proliferation and vulnerable to disruption
TLDR
The identification of metabolic weaknesses of cancer cells has been used to create strategies for treating cancer, but there are still challenges to be faced in bringing the drugs that target cancer metabolism to the clinic. Expand
Biology – cancer metabolic phenotype
TLDR
This chapter provides detailed consideration of the current understanding of the cancer metabolic phenotype and its development and significance, and the specific effect of major oncogenes and onco-suppressors on metabolism of cancers. Expand
Metabolic reprogramming of the tumor
TLDR
A historical account on cancer metabolism research is provided to try to integrate and systematize the metabolic strategies in which cancer cells engage to overcome selective pressures during their inception and evolution. Expand
Cancer metabolism: Key players in metabolic reprogramming
  • T. Soga
  • Medicine, Biology

  • 2013
TLDR
Recent findings related to key transcription factors and enzymes that play an important role in the regulation of cancer metabolism are reviewed, revealing that many of the signaling pathways altered by gene mutations regulate cell metabolism in cancer. Expand
Metabolic alterations in cancer cells and therapeutic implications
TLDR
Several important metabolic alterations in cancer cells are reviewed, with an emphasis on increased aerobic glycolysis (the Warburg effect) and glutamine addiction, and the mechanisms that may contribute to such metabolic changes. Expand
The Metabolic Landscape of Lung Cancer: New Insights in a Disturbed Glucose Metabolism
TLDR
This review with a focus on lung cancer covers several fundamental principles of the disturbed glucose metabolism, such as the “Warburg” effect, the importance of the glycolysis and its branching pathways, the unanticipated gluconeogenesis and mitochondrial metabolism. Expand

'The metabolism of tumours': 70 years later.
TLDR
As a result of genetic alterations and intratumoral hypoxia, Hif-1alpha is overexpressed in the majority of common human cancers relative to the surrounding normal tissue and in human breast cancer and brain tumours, HIF-1 alpha overexpression is strongly correlated with tumour grade and vascularity.

  • 2008
TLDR
New data suggests that this metabolic switch within the solid tumour may provide a benefit to the tumour not by increasing glycolysis but by decreasing mitochondrial activity. Expand
The impact of O2 availability on human cancer
TLDR
Over the past decade work from many laboratories has elucidated the mechanisms by which hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) modulate tumour cell metabolism, angiogenesis, growth and metastasis. Expand
p53 and metabolism
TLDR
The p53 gene has been shown to respond to metabolic changes and to influence metabolic pathways through several mechanisms that reflect the function of basal p53 levels that do not require overt activation and others might even promote, rather than inhibit, tumour progression. Expand
The LKB1–AMPK pathway: metabolism and growth control in tumour suppression
TLDR
The connection of AMPK with several tumour suppressors suggests that therapeutic manipulation of this pathway using established diabetes drugs warrants further investigation in patients with cancer. Expand
Mitochondria in cancer: not just innocent bystanders.
TLDR
Experimental evidence which supports or refutes the Warburg effect is examined, and the possible advantages conferred on cancer cells by 'metabolic transformation' are discussed. Expand
Oct1 loss of function induces a coordinate metabolic shift that opposes tumorigenicity
TLDR
It is shown that loss of the widely expressed transcription factor Oct1 induces a coordinated metabolic shift: mitochondrial activity and amino acid oxidation are increased, while glucose metabolism is reduced, which directly opposes tumorigenicity. Expand
Why do cancers have high aerobic glycolysis?
TLDR
It is proposed that persistent metabolism of glucose to lactate even in aerobic conditions is an adaptation to intermittent hypoxia in pre-malignant lesions, which leads to microenvironmental acidosis requiring evolution to phenotypes resistant to acid-induced cell toxicity. Expand
Defining the role of hypoxia-inducible factor 1 in cancer biology and therapeutics
TLDR
This review summarizes the current state of knowledge regarding the molecular mechanisms by which Hif-1 contributes to cancer progression, focusing on clinical data associating increased HIF-1 levels with patient mortality and pharmacological data showing anticancer effects of H IF-1 inhibitors in mouse models of human cancer. Expand
p53 Regulates Mitochondrial Respiration
TLDR
It is shown that p53, one of the most frequently mutated genes in cancers, modulates the balance between the utilization of respiratory and glycolytic pathways, and Synthesis of Cytochrome c Oxidase 2 (SCO2) is identified as the downstream mediator of this effect. Expand
