AMPK directly inhibits NDPK through a phosphoserine switch to maintain cellular homeostasis
Rob U. Onyenwoke, Lawrence J. Forsberg, Lucy Liu, Tyisha Williams, Oscar Alzate, and Jay E. Brenman
Nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK) is a direct target of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and is inhibited by AMPK-mediated phosphorylation at a conserved serine residue. This serine residue in NDPK is mutated in neuroblastoma, making the enzyme constitutively active.

Unraveling the Obesity-Cancer Connection
Gary Taubes
A growing body of research shows that insulin and a related hormone play a key role in fueling tumors. They also may be a link between obesity, diabetes, and cancer.

Cancer Prevention With a Diabetes Pill?
Gary Taubes
There is a caveat to the observational research linking use of the insulin-lowering drug metformin to a decrease in cancer incidence: Studies of this kind are incapable of establishing a causal relationship.

Ravenous for Glucose
Gary Taubes
Tumor cells can survive without oxygen and generate energy by a relatively inefficient process known as aerobic glycolysis. But researchers still don’t know which comes first: the metabolism change or the cancer.
