    Methylglyoxal, a glycolysis side-product, induces Hsp90 glycation and YAP-mediated tumor growth and metastasis

    Marie-Julie Nokin et al.
    Carbonyl stress mediated by Methylglyoxal affects Hsp90 activity, inhibits the Hippo pathway and promotes tumor growth and metastasis in breast cancer.

    Akt regulation of glycolysis mediates bioenergetic stability in epithelial cells

    Yin P Hung et al.
    Individual cells display heterogeneous fluctuations in metabolic activity, with amplitude and kinetics controlled by interlocking feedbacks between glycolysis and the Insulin/PI3K/Akt signaling pathway.

    Cellular acidosis triggers human MondoA transcriptional activity by driving mitochondrial ATP production

    Blake R Wilde et al.
    The MondoA transcription factor localizes to the outer mitochondrial membrane where it coordinates an adaptive transcriptional response to elevated cellular energy represented by high cytoplasmic glucose and high mitochondrial ATP.

    Autophagy is a critical regulator of memory CD8+ T cell formation

    Daniel J Puleston et al.
    Autophagy is required for CD8+ T cell memory formation; in aged individuals autophagy levels are diminished, and increasing autophagy enhances their CD8+ T cell responses.

    Screening for insulin-independent pathways that modulate glucose homeostasis identifies androgen receptor antagonists

    Sri Teja Mullapudi et al.
    Zebrafish insulin mutants serve as an innovative platform to identify novel mechanisms regulating glucose homeostasis.

    Sensing of nutrients by CPT1C regulates late endosome/lysosome anterograde transport and axon growth

    Marta Palomo-Guerrero et al.
    The pseudoenzyme CPT1C is able to sense changes in intracellular malonyl-CoA levels caused by nutrients or energy stress and regulate late endosomes/lysosomes anterograde transport, necessary for proper axon growth.

    PCK1 and DHODH drive colorectal cancer liver metastatic colonization and hypoxic growth by promoting nucleotide synthesis

    Norihiro Yamaguchi et al.
    The gluconeogenic enzyme PCK1 and pyrimidine nucleotide biosynthetic enzyme DHODH drive hypoxic pyrimidine nucleotide biosynthesis and liver metastatic colonization in colorectal cancer, which is therapeutically exploitable by DHODH pharmacologic inhibition.
