Starving the Devourer: Cutting Cancer Off from Its Favorite Foods

Katt, W. P., Lukey, M. J., Cerione, R. A. (September 2019) Starving the Devourer: Cutting Cancer Off from Its Favorite Foods. Cell Chem Biol, 26 (9). pp. 1197-1199. ISSN 2451-9448

Increased consumption of glucose and glutamine are metabolic hallmarks of tumorigenesis. In this issue of Cell Chemical Biology, Reckzeh et al. (2019) describe the discovery of Glutor, a potent inhibitor of cellular glucose uptake. Combining Glutor with the glutaminase inhibitor CB-839 creates a metabolic crisis in cancer cells, synergistically impeding proliferation.
