Glucose metabolism determines resistance of cancer cells to bioenergetic crisis after cytochrome-c release

By Heinrich J Huber, Heiko Dussmann, Seán M Kilbride, Markus Rehm and Jochen H M Prehn


How can cancer cells survive the consequences of cyt-c release? Huber et al provide a quantitative analysis of the protective role of enhanced glucose utilization in cancer cells and investigate the impact of cell-to-cell heterogeneity in mitochondrial bioenergetics
