Unraveling the mechanisms that create the individualized metabolism in leukemia

A research collaboration based in Kumamoto University (Japan) has shown that lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1), an enzyme involved in gene expression, produces individualized metabolism depending on the type of acute myeloid leukemia cells. Cancer cells are known to have a unique ability to metabolize substances differently from normal cells, and this ability is considered to […]

Cancer cells eat themselves to survive

To survive life-threatening injuries, cancer cells use a technique in which they eat parts of the membrane surrounding them. This is shown for the first time in research from a team of Danish researchers. It is the membrane of cancer cells that is at the focus of the new research now showing a completely new […]
