Metabolic relationship between cancer-associated fibroblasts and cancer cells

Abstract

Cancer-associated fibroblasts undergo the reverse Warburg effect and provide cancer cells with glycolytic metabolites.The interaction between cancer cells and CAFs helps cancer cells manage the Warburg effect.Loss of stromal Cav-1 is a biomarker of poor prognosis in breast cancers.CAF-derived exosomes (CDE) can reprogram the metabolic pathway of cancer cells.CAFs augment cancer addiction to glutamine and its metabolically-relevant consequences.Alanine secreted by pancreatic stellate cells supports tumor metabolism.
