Providing functional insight into tumor biology, resistance mechanisms and immunity
Metabolic processes (aka metabolism) represent a functional surrogate of the end-products of the active networks used by genes, transcripts, and proteins to execute various physiological programs.
While it is commonly understood that a massive reprogramming of cellular metabolism is one of the hallmarks of cancer, metabolic processes are actually central in all cancer hallmarks, from angiogenesis to evasion of immunity.
This free, comprehensive eBook provides an overview of the many ways metabolic processes are involved in oncogenic activity. It includes references and case studies that demonstrate some of the important cancer-related discoveries elucidated by metabolomics.
