Elevated Endogenous SDHA Drives Pathological Metabolism in Highly Metastatic Uveal Melanoma.

08:00 EDT 1st October 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Elevated Endogenous SDHA Drives Pathological Metabolism in Highly Metastatic Uveal Melanoma."

Metastatic uveal melanoma (UM) has a very poor prognosis and no effective therapy. Despite remarkable advances in treatment of cutaneous melanoma, UM remains recalcitrant to chemotherapy, small-molecule kinase inhibitors, and immune-based therapy.

Pathological conditions resulting from abnormal anabolism or catabolism of lipids in the body.

A lipoxygenase metabolite of ARACHIDONIC ACID. It is a highly selective ligand used to label mu-opioid receptors in both membranes and tissue sections. The 12-S-HETE analog has been reported to augment tumor cell metastatic potential through activation of protein kinase C.
