Dejure et al (2017) demonstrates an intriguing link between glutamine, c-MYC protein levels, and c-MYC-dependent transcription. Glutamine-dependent c-MYC protein level, which is sensed through the c-MYC mRNA 3'-UTR, determines global transcriptional response to glutamine deprivation in HCT116 colon cancer cells. These findings add another layer of complexity to c-MYC's role as a nexus in metabolic regulation.

Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
