Action at a Distance: Allostery and the Development of Drugs to Target Cancer Cell Metabolism.
Cambridge, United States. In Chem Biol, 18 Oct 2014
We discuss the rationale for developing such drugs and review three targets with central roles in metabolic pathways crucial for cancer cell growth: pyruvate kinase muscle isozyme splice variant 2 (PKM2) in glycolysis, glutaminase in glutaminolysis, and mutations in isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 and 2 isozymes (IDH1/2) in the tricarboxylic acid cycle.
Asparaginase in the treatment of non-ALL hematologic malignancies.
Baltimore, United States. In Cancer Chemother Pharmacol, May 2014
Indeed, both Escherichia coli and Erwinia chrysanthemi asparaginases possess glutaminase enzymatic activity, and their administrations have shown to reduce serum glutamine level by deamidating glutamine to glutamate and ammonia.
