Enzymes of serine metabolism in normal, developing and neoplastic rat tissues

Advances in Enzyme Regulation
K Snell


The cellular pattern of serine metabolism was conceptualized into four main areas of metabolic sequences: the biosynthesis of serine from intermediates of the glycolytic pathway (the so-called "phosphorylated pathway"); and alternative pathways of serine utilization initiated by serine dehydratase, serine aminotransferase and serine hydroxymethyltransferase. The known regulatory and adaptive properties of the enzymes involved in these pathways were reviewed in detail and key enzymes associated with each pathway (phosphoserine aminotransferase, serine dehydratase, serine aminotransferase, and serine hydroxymethyltransferase, respectively) were selected for further investigation. Tissue distribution studies in the rat revealed that whereas serine dehydratase and serine aminotransferase activities were largely confined to the liver, phosphoserine aminotransferase and serine hydroxymethyltransferase activities were more broadly distributed. In particular in tissues with a high rate of cell turnover, phosphoserine aminotransferase and serine hydroxymethyltransferase activities were coordinately increased. An increase in serine hydroxymethyltransferase activity coincided temporally with the incorporation of [3-14C]serine and thymidin...Continue Reading

Cancer Metabolism

In order for cancer cells to maintain rapid, uncontrolled cell proliferation, they must acquire a source of energy. Cancer cells acquire metabolic energy from their surrounding environment and utilize the host cell nutrients to do so. Here is the latest research on cancer metabolism.
