A Non-canonical Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle Underlies Cellular Identity

Dr Paige ArnoldDr. Paige Arnold, from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, USA, will join us this year to present her most recent findings on Tricarboxylic acid cycle, through a presentation entitled "A Non-canonical Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle Underlies Cellular Identity".

Dr. Arnold states that the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle is a core metabolic pathway that produces reducing equivalents for energy production and critical biosynthetic intermediates. Despite the ubiquitous importance of TCA cycle-derived products for cell viability and proliferation, mammalian cells display significant heterogeneity in TCA cycle activity. The existence of diverse TCA cycle wiring across different cell types led her and her team to hypothesize that TCA cycle enzymes might assemble into multiple pathway configurations. By combining genetic co-essentiality mapping with isotope tracing studies in cancer cells and stem cells, they describe a biochemical alternative to the traditional TCA cycle that is cell-state dependent and required for cell fate transitions.
