The intake and metabolism of carbohydrates for the generation of energy and biomass is evolutionarily conserved, down to the most primitive of cells. Although a basal rate of glucose metabolism occurs in all cells, the processing rates of glucose can become dramatically enhanced when cells acquire malignant properties, or remain undifferentiated.
