Besides aerobic glycolysis, the increased levels in glutamine comsuption is also a hallmark exhibited in tumors and both phenomena are required in order to maintain its highly proliferative phenotype. With recent publications showing that previously known oncogenes also regulate these metabolic pathways, we anticipate that the better understanding of both structural organization and mec...
