    Metabolic profiling during malaria reveals the role of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor in regulating kidney injury

    Michelle M Lissner et al.
    Illustrating the impact of host metabolism on infection outcome, loss of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor in radioresistant cells leads to heme-mediated kidney toxicity during malaria.

    Downregulation of the tyrosine degradation pathway extends Drosophila lifespan

    Andrey A Parkhitko et al.
    The tyrosine degradation pathway reprogramming connects mitochondrial dysfunction, aging, and production of tyrosine-derived neuromediators that can be targeted with an FDA-approved drug, Tigecycline.

    SIRT1 regulates sphingolipid metabolism and neural differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells through c-Myc-SMPDL3B

    Wei Fan et al.
    SIRT1, a cellular metabolic sensor, transcriptionally promotes sphingomyelin degradation in embryonic stem cells, which in turn modulates their membrane fluidity and neural differentiation.

    Functional cross-talk between allosteric effects of activating and inhibiting ligands underlies PKM2 regulation

    Jamie A Macpherson et al.
    Specific residues within an enzyme integrate allosteric inputs that originate from distinct ligand-binding pockets.

    Mapping immune variation and var gene switching in naive hosts infected with Plasmodium falciparum

    Kathryn Milne et al.
    Parasite variants associated with severe malaria do not have an intrinsic growth or survival advantage in vivo, which indicates that a change in host environment is required for their selection.

    Repurposing eflornithine to treat a patient with a rare ODC1 gain-of-function variant disease

    Surender Rajasekaran et al.
    Genetic sequencing has led to the increased diagnoses of rare diseases, strategies such as repurposing drugs and global metabolomics offer promise and bring hope to afflicted families.

    Elevating acetyl-CoA levels reduces aspects of brain aging

    Antonio Currais et al.
    A novel neuroprotective pathway that enhances acetyl-CoA metabolism via inhibition of acetyl-CoA carboxylase 1 may prevent the contribution of the aging process in the brain to Alzheimer's disease.

    Abnormal oxidative metabolism in a quiet genomic background underlies clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma

    Jianing Xu et al.
    A distinct class of kidney tumors is characterized not by patterns of somatic mutations, but by a distinct metabolism.

    Metabolomic profiling of rare cell populations isolated by flow cytometry from tissues

    Andrew W DeVilbiss et al.
    A method was developed for the metabolomic analysis of small numbers of flow cytometrically isolated cells from rare cell populations such as hematopoietic stem cells and circulating cancer cells.

    Drosophila serotonin 2A receptor signaling coordinates central metabolic processes to modulate aging in response to nutrient choice

    Yang Lyu et al.
    Dietary choice per se is sufficient to modulate aging in Drosophila and through serotonergic control of peripheral metabolism.
