Oncogenic fatty acid metabolism rewires energy supply chain in gastric carcinogenesis.

Gastric carcinogenesis develops within a sequential carcinogenic cascade from pre-cancerous metaplasia to dysplasia and adenocarcinoma, and oncogenic gene activation can drive the process. Metabolic reprogramming is considered a key mechanism for cancer cell growth and proliferation. However, it remains unclear how metabolic changes contribute to the progression of metaplasia to dysplasia. We have examined metabolic dynamics during gastric carcinogenesis using a novel mouse model that induces Kras activation in zymogen-secreting chief cells.
