  • Asparagine bioavailability governs metastasis in a model of breast cancer
    • Authors: Knott; Simon, Wagenblast, Elvin, Khan, Showkhin, Kim, Sun, Soto, Mar, Wagner, Michel, Turgeon, Marc-Olivier, Fish, Lisa, Erard, Nicolas, Gable, Annika, Maceli, Ashley, Dickopf, Steffen, Papachristou, Evangelia, D’Santos, Clive, Carey, Lisa, Wilkinson, John, Harrell, J., Perou, Charles, Goodarzi, Hani, Poulogiannis, George, Hannon, Gregory
      Abstract: In a mouse model of breast cancer, asparagine bioavailability strongly influences metastasis and this is correlated with the production of proteins that regulate the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, which provides at least one potential mechanism for how a single amino acid could regulate metastatic progression.
