Interplay Between Glucose Metabolism Reprogramming and Proliferative Signaling

Uncontrolled cell proliferation is a fundamental feature of cancer. Normal cells maintain the homeostasis of cell proliferation by regulating the cell cycle and division, whereas cancer cells deregulate these signals and become masters of their destiny. Glucose metabolism reprogramming can meet the energy requirements and biological macromolecular requirements for the rapid proliferation of cancer cells. At the same time, glucose metabolism-related enzymes have regulatory effects on cell cycle and cell proliferation signaling pathways. CD BioGlyco enables the use of omics techniques to analyze the interaction mechanism between glucose metabolism reprogramming and cancer cell proliferation.

What We Do

  • Analysis of the effect of glucose metabolism reprogramming on the cell cycle

Cell proliferation consists of three components, namely growth, DNA replication, and cell division, which are all manifested in the cell cycle progression, so cell proliferation is achieved through the cell cycle. The cell cycle is regulated by cyclin-dependent kinases, and the expression of cyclin-dependent kinases is regulated by the energy supply of glucose metabolism, and glucose metabolism-related enzymes have non-metabolic functions to maintain cancer cell proliferation. Therefore, we are able to provide the following specific services, including but not limited to:

  • Analysis of the relationship between the expression of glucose metabolism-related enzymes and the cell cycle
  • Analysis of the periodic transfer of enzymes related to glucose metabolism to the nucleus
  • Analysis of changes in glucose uptake in the S phase
  • Analysis of the effects of cyclin-dependent kinases on enzymes related to glucose metabolism
  • Analysis of the relationship between kinases involved in cell mitosis and glucose metabolism
  • Analysis of the regulation of glucose metabolism on key signaling pathways of cell proliferation

Cell proliferation is inseparable from cell signaling. In normal cells, extracellular stimulation is required to initiate signaling, however, cancer cells generally do not require extracellular stimulation and are able to escape normal physiological constraints to maintain rapid cell proliferation. We are able to provide mechanistic analysis between cell signaling and glucose metabolism based on the MOPCGM platform.

We can analyze specific proliferative signaling pathways associated with the regulation of glucose metabolism in cancer cells as follows:

  • PI3K-AKT-mTOR pathway
  • Raf-MEK-ERK pathway
  • IKK-nuclear factor ĸB pathway

Our Advantages

  • We integrate the relationship between cancer cell proliferation signaling and glucose metabolism.
  • We provide a non-metabolic functional analysis of glucose metabolizing enzymes.
  • We are able to provide assays for cell cycle regulation of modulators of glucose metabolism.
