The Heterogeneity of Cancer Metabolism

The Heterogeneity of Cancer Metabolism-1

Editor Anne Le 2021 Genetic alterations in cancer, in addition to being the fundamental drivers of tumorigenesis, can give rise to a variety of metabolic adaptations that allow cancer cells to survive and proliferate in diverse tumor microenvironments. This metabolic fexibility is different from normal cellular metabolic processes and leads to heterogeneity in cancer metabolism […]

Viral Entry into Host Cells

Viral Entry into Host Cells-1

Edited by Stefan Pöhlmann Graham Simmons 2013 For a virus to invade a host cell it needs to penetrate the physical barrier imposed by the plasma membrane. Viruses have evolved specialized surface proteins to meet this challenge. These proteins facilitate delivery of the viral genetic information into the host cell by either fusing the viral envelope with a […]
