SMYD2-dependent HSP90 methylation promotes cancer cell ...

Methylation of HSP90AB1 by SMYD2 promotes cancer cell growth It is known that HSP90 plays a crucial role in maintaining oncogenic protein homeostasis as a chaperone protein. To examine the effect of SMYD2-dependent methylation on the stability of client proteins, we conducted protein stability assays after knockdown of SMYD2.

S‐adenosylmethionine: A metabolite critical to the ...

S‐adenosylmethionine can be synthesized in the cytoplasm of every cell, especially hepatocytes. 20 In liver, SAM synthesis is mainly derived from methionine, which accounts for half of the daily intake of amino acids. 21, 22 Methionine is converted into SAM by MAT in an ATP‐dependent process (Figure 1). 21 During this process, methionine is ...

Targeting mTOR for cancer therapy | Journal of Hematology ...

Mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a protein kinase regulating cell growth, survival, metabolism, and immunity. mTOR is usually assembled into several complexes such as mTOR complex 1/2 (mTORC1/2). In cooperation with raptor, rictor, LST8, and mSin1, key components in mTORC1 or mTORC2, mTOR catalyzes the phosphorylation of multiple targets such as ribosomal protein S6 kinase β-1 (S6K1 ...

PKM1 Confers Metabolic Advantages and Promotes Cell ...

The relative importance of PKM isoforms in tumor growth has been controversial. Morita et al. show that PKM1 promotes the growth of multiple tumor models using mouse lines expressing PKM1 or PKM2 from the endogenous Pkm locus. PKM1 is expressed in human SCLC, and it is important for SCLC cell proliferation.

Does Long-Term L-Carnitine Use Cause Cancer?

Cancer results from errors in the genetic code that trigger runaway cell growth. Genes have built-in mechanisms that prevent genetic errors, but sometimes they don’t work. Environmental factors such as radiation, poisons and even specific foods can increase the risk of genetic errors that lead to cancer. L-carnitine is a popular supplement formed from the amino acids lysine and methionine ...

S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet, also known as SAM and SAMe) is the principal biological methyl donor synthesized in all mammalian cells but most abundantly in the liver.Biosynthesis of AdoMet requires the enzyme methionine adenosyltransferase (MAT). In mammals, two genes, MAT1A that is largely expressed by normal liver and MAT2A that is expressed by all extrahepatic tissues, encode MAT.

Cysteine Depletion, a Key Action to Challenge Cancer Cells ...

Cancer cells are characterized as highly proliferative at the expense of enhancement of metabolic rate. Consequently, cancer cells rely on antioxidant defenses to overcome the associated increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). The reliance of tumor metabolism on amino acids, especially amino acid transport systems, has been extensively studied over the past decade.

Promotion of intestinal carcinogenesis by dietary methionine

In contrast, cancer cell lines of different origins exhibited a strict dependency on methionine for growth, suggesting an important relationship to oncogenic development (6– 8). However, after appearance of primary tumors in rats, rhabdomyosarcoma metastatic spread to the lungs was inhibited by a low methionine diet ( 9 ).
