One Response to Metabolism and cancer articles – june 2011

    I found this website is very usefull since now I have great interest in metabolim and cancer.I think it would be a good choice to make it the study area in my post doctor career.In my opinion,the main difficulty with cancer study is the inhomogeneity of cancer cells.They have different genetic background(mutations),time,location,even cell type.But in metabolic level all cancer cells in a cancer microenviroment should share some basic metabolic characteristic (glucose untilization,FFA synthesis,mitochondrial activity,etl…) which may be targeted for cancer therapy.So I appreciate your study very much and I’m looking forward to communicate with you.Thanks a lot!
