LKB1 is the primary kinase responsible for activation of AMPK, which is required to enhance glycolysis to compensate for the reduction in ATP under reduced OXPHOS. Mitochondrial genome sequence analysis of 226 paired tumor and normal tissue samples from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) revealed deleterious tumor-specific somatic mtDNA mutations in 63% of rectal adenocarcinomas, 53% of colon adenocarcinomas, 36% of ovarian serous cyst adenocarcinomas, and 30% of acute myeloid leukemias (14). Potential clinical applications of OXPHOS inhibitors. NO is released from compounds such as isosorbide dinitrate, xanthinol nicotinate, and S-nitrosocaptopril, and endogenous NO can be stimulated by administration of insulin (39). However, a more than 300-fold excess of metformin is required to achieve a comparable effect in vitro, suggesting that the complex metabolic flux of the tumor microenvironment is poorly modeled in vitro (73). First, targeting OXPHOS appears to reduce the OCR in a wide range of cancer types, suggesting broad applicability for this approach (40, 42, 47). Discovery of a biomarker candidate for surgical stratification in high-grade serous ovarian cancer. 3.8.2. ©2018 AACR. Hamamoto R(1), Nakamura Y(1). HHS Epub 2014 Mar 7. As analysis of mtDNA content or the expression of OXPHOS genes may not reflect the level of functional OXPHOS, it is important to pursue a multiexperimental approach to fully characterize OXPHOS activity. Interestingly, however, cancer cells harboring mtDNA mutations in complex I subunits were 5- to 20-fold more sensitive to the complex I inhibitors, metformin and phenformin, compared with cell lines lacking such mutations (15). Under hypoxia condition, the metabolism of cancer cells is reprogrammed from oxidative phosphorylation to ... PGK1 can be used as an important biomarker for targeted therapy of breast cancer. However, recent studies have shown that OXPHOS can be also upregulated in certain cancers, including leukemias, lymphomas, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, high OXPHOS subtype melanoma, and endometrial carcinoma, and that this can occur even in the face of active glycolysis.

Second, diffusion of the inhibitor to poorly vascularized hypoxic regions may not be required, as OXPHOS inhibitors acting primarily on the normoxic regions to reduce the OCR may indirectly lead to higher oxygen levels in regions that are chronically hypoxic prior to treatment by allowing molecular oxygen, which very readily diffuses, to reach formerly hypoxic regions. eISSN: 1557-3265 2016 Apr;107(4):377-84. doi: 10.1111/cas.12884. Background Despite outstanding responses to anti-PD-1 agents in a subset of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, approximately 80% of patients fail to have prolonged favorable response. 2018; 24(11):2482-2490 (ISSN: 1078-0432) Ashton TM; McKenna WG; Kunz-Schughart LA; Higgins GS. Thus, the reversible cellular energy metabolisms should be considered in blocking tumor metabolism and may be targeted to sensitize them in anti-cancer therapy. Int J Med Sci. Ashton TM , McKenna WG , Kunz-Schughart LA , Higgins GS Clin Cancer Res , 24(11):2482-2490, 02 Feb 2018 Molecular-targeted therapy has been developed for cancer chemoprevention and treatment. Caveolin-1 (Cav-1), a constituent protein of caveolae, has … Abstract . However, in vivo studies with inhibitors that show promise in vitro may be warranted, as it is possible that higher dose regimens could be effective, that the compound could accumulate in the tumor, or that even a mild reduction in the OCR by these compounds could translate to a significant antitumor effect or elevated free oxygen levels. This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. Such cancer … This hybrid phenotype can facilitate metabolic plasticity of cancer cells more specifically in metastasis and therapy-resistance. 2017 Jan;1861(1 Pt A):3221-3236. doi: 10.1016/j.bbagen.2016.08.006. Prostate cancer (PCa) has become the biggest killer of older men in the United States and Europe. This effect is a result of the ROS generated by the radiolysis of water that attack DNA, forming readily reversible DNA radicals. The observation that cancer cells have upregulated glycolysis compared with normal cells leads to the assumption that oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) is universally downregulated in cancer. However, recent studies have shown that OXPHOS can be also upregulated in certain cancers, including leukemias, lymphomas, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, high OXPHOS subtype melanoma, and endometrial carcinoma, and that this can occur even in the face of active glycolysis. Atovaquone also has antitumor activity in U266 multiple myeloma xenografts, although this could be due to inhibition of STAT3 rather than complex III (57). Aberrant oxidative metabolism is one of the hallmarks of cancer. ©2018 AACR. OXPHOS inhibitors may thus be useful as stand-alone agents for the treatment of melanomas with high PGC1α expression, and in combination with BRAF inhibitors for targeting BRAF-mutant melanomas. Hypoxic tumor cells are also up to three times more resistant to radiotherapy than normoxic tumor cells due to the absence of the oxygen enhancement effect (37). The emerging role of targeting cancer metabolism for cancer therapy. Mitochondrial proteomics and gene expression analysis revealed that ETC components are upregulated in the OXPHOS-high subset, particularly subunits of complexes I and IV. Clin Cancer Res; 24(11); 2482-90. Caution is required, however, as the novel BAY87-2243 complex I inhibitor alleviated hypoxia and improved radiation response without toxicity in mice, but the initial phase I trial had to be terminated due to unexpected toxicity (71, 72). Cancer cells preferentially switch to aerobic glycolysis rather than oxidative phosphorylation as their means of glucose metabolism. Higgins is supported by a Cancer Research UK Clinician Scientist Award (grant number C34326/A13092). Reactive species overproduction could promote carcinogenesis via inducing genetic mutations and activating oncogenic pathways, and thus, antioxidant therapy was considered as an important strategy for cancer prevention and treatment. Protein methylation … It has been known since the work of Gray and his colleagues in the 1950s that solid tumors frequently have regions of low oxygen known as hypoxia, which results from an imbalance between oxygen demand and poor oxygen supply due to abnormal vasculature (36, 37). The activity of these complexes could be overcome by treatment of the tissue sections with metformin or sodium azide, an inhibitor of complex IV. Even very low levels of oxygen, around 2%, are sufficient to yield oxygen enhancement. There is also potential for synergy of OXPHOS inhibitors with conventional chemotherapeutics, targeted therapies such as Src, EGFR, and BRAF inhibitors, vascular modifiers, inhibitors of other metabolic pathways such as glycolysis, and radiation in hypoxic tumors.

In particular, mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) is an important target in cancer therapy. In contrast to prior belief, cancer cells require oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) to strive, and exacerbated OXPHOS dependency frequently characterizes cancer stem cells, as well as primary or acquired resistance against chemotherapy or tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Reactive species overproduction could promote carcinogenesis via inducing genetic mutations and activating oncogenic pathways, and thus, antioxidant therapy was considered as an important strategy for cancer prevention and treatment. In particular, IR-26 also exhibits potential for real-time monitoring of AML cells with an in vivo flow cytometry (IVFC) system. USA.gov. Selected examples of OXPHOS inhibitors studied in vitro are shown in Table 3, but future in vivo experiments are required to determine the suitability of these compounds as anticancer therapeutics. Consequently, BRAF inhibitors synergize with the complex I inhibitor phenformin to reduce the viability of BRAF V600E–mutant melanoma cells and to induce tumor regression in a BRAFV600E/PTENnull-driven mouse melanoma model (33). Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. In contrast to prior belief, cancer cells require oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) to strive, and exacerbated OXPHOS dependency frequently characterizes cancer stem cells, as well as primary or acquired resistance against chemotherapy or tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Caveolin-1 (Cav-1), a constituent protein of caveolae, has been shown to mediate tumorigenesis and progression through oxidative stress modulation recently. A growing arsenal of therapeutic agents is being designed to suppress the transfer of mitochondria from stromal to … A growing arsenal of therapeutic agents is being designed to suppress the transfer of mitochondria from stromal to … G.S. Cancer cells can also acquire a hybrid phenotype in which both glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) can be utilized. Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a deadly hematological malignancy with frequent disease relapse. A nonexhaustive list of OXPHOS inhibitors under study in vivo or in the clinic as anticancer therapeutics. The HK2 Dependent "Warburg Effect" and Mitochondrial Oxidative Phosphorylation in Cancer: Targets for Effective Therapy with 3-Bromopyruvate. An additional drawback to approaches that require a drug to be delivered to hypoxic tumor regions is that these regions are usually poorly vascularized, so high doses may be required to achieve the local drug concentrations required to elicit an effect. This is indeed the case for many cancers, but in some cancers, this assumption is being challenged by an increasing body of evidence to suggest that mitochondrial metabolism is not impaired, including leukemias, lymphomas, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, high OXPHOS subtype melanoma, and endometrial carcinoma (1, 2). impairs oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) to exert targeted therapeutic effects for AML cells. The mitochondrial translation inhibitor, tigecycline, strongly attenuated growth of RB1-deficient MDA-MB-436 breast xenografts (24). A key mechanism of action of metformin in cancer cells in vitro is complex I inhibition (48, 49). Glycolysis, oxidative phosphorylation, and pentose phosphate pathways produce different glucose-derived metabolites and thus affect cells' bioenergetics differently. The Mitochondrion as an Emerging Therapeutic Target in Cancer Trends Mol Med. Both tumor areas with limited oxygen diffusion due to the pathologic tumor vasculature, and microregions distant from perfused vessels, are therefore chronically hypoxic. Efforts have been made to repurpose metformin, widely used in the treatment of type II diabetes mellitus, into an anti-neoplastic agent. Prostate cancer (PCa) has become the biggest killer of older men in the United States and Europe. This review discusses novel applications of a wide range of OXPHOS inhibitors that have a suitable therapeutic index to target cancer cell metabolism. Front Genet. Recently, the PAK1 has emerged as a potential therapeutic target in cancer due to its role in many oncogenic signaling pathways. Request PDF | Abstract 4970: Oxidative phosphorylation as a target in triple negative breast cancer therapy | Altered cellular metabolism is a hallmark of cancer… Emerging ... RV in order to impair the cancer stem cells metabolism either by inhibiting aerobic glycolysis or by forcing them into oxidative phosphorylation, as previously described in this review. ME344 is a complex I inhibitor that synergizes with TKIs to induce tumor control in a spontaneous breast cancer model and is currently being combined with bevacizumab in a clinical trial in patients with early HER2-negative breast cancer (65, 66). Atovaquone is FDA approved to treat pneumocystis pneumonia and malaria, caused by the parasites Pneumocystis jirovecii and Plasmodium falciparum, respectively (52). As Gray predicted, and has been frequently subsequently demonstrated, tumor hypoxia results in worse clinical outcomes because hypoxic cells are resistant to cancer therapy, leading to local recurrence and an increased propensity toward metastasis (38). Mitochondrial respiration--an important therapeutic target in melanoma. Under low concentrations, ROS may function as signaling … Transcriptomic data and Western blotting demonstrated that OXPHOS is highly upregulated in breast cancers deficient in RB1, a protein lost in 20% to 30% of basal-like breast cancers (23, 24). CAI might be more successful if used to treat cancers with upregulated OXPHOS. The hallmarks of cancer growth, increased glycolysis and lactate production in tumours, have raised attention due to recent observations suggesting a wide spectrum of oxidative phosphorylation deficit and decreased availability of ATP associated with malignancies and tumour cell expansion. Among them, much attention … Cancer cells undergo major changes in energy and biosynthetic metabolism. Glucose, as the main consuming nutrient of the body, faces different destinies in cancer cells. Abstract 4970: Oxidative phosphorylation as a target in triple negative breast cancer therapy Funda Meric-Bernstam , Kurt Evans , Xiaofeng Zheng , Xiaoping Su , Erkan Yuca , Stephen Scott , Argun Akcakanat , Naoto Ueno , Bora Lim , Jennifer Litton , Vicente Valero , Fraser Symmans , Gabriel Hortobagyi , Charles Perou , Debu Tripathy , Guilio Draetta , Joe Marszalek , Ana Maria … In many cancers, however, OXPHOS upregulation is limited to particular cancer subtypes, as exemplified below. Roughly 50% of melanomas carry activating BRAF mutations, such as BRAF V600E, and are therefore initially susceptible to BRAF inhibitors. Cancer cells have upregulated glycolysis compared with normal cells, which has led many to the assumption that oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) is downregulated in all cancers. It has an excellent safety profile and has been used in the clinic for over 30 years with approximately 3.7 million prescriptions being issued in the United States every year. Thank you for sharing this Clinical Cancer Research article. The biggest challenge for AML therapy is the lack of methods to target and kill the heterogeneous leukemia cells, which lead to disease relapse. Cancer … Transcriptomic and metabolic analyses of Ras-driven pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) stem-like cells reveal a strong reliance on OXPHOS and decreased glycolysis (19). Also described are selected anticancer agents which generally act as strong energy blockers inside cancer cells. Alleviation of tumor hypoxia may be achieved in cancers in which OXPHOS is not upregulated, so this approach could be widely applicable. … PLoS Biol. However, besides the capacity of USUV to induce an increase in levels of ROS, the virus showed a potent … McKenna), Medical Research Council(MC_PC_12004; to W.G. ©2018 American Association for Cancer Research.

Hydrocortisone is another compound that inhibits complex IV in isolated mitochondria and is able to alleviate hypoxia in TLT and FSaII fibrosarcoma tumors, ameliorating radiation response (59, 60). 2021 Jan 7;11:560997. doi: 10.3389/fgene.2020.560997. In light of the metabolic heterogeneity and plasticity of cancer cells that had until recently remained unappreciated, strategies … We highlight novel applications of OXPHOS inhibitors with a suitable therapeutic index to target cancer cell metabolism. 2020 Jun 3;11(8):858-875. doi: 10.1039/c9md00572b. This metabolic switch is believed to enhance cancer cell survival. The dotted line indicates the flow of electrons through complex I, complex II, Coenzyme Q10 (Q), complex III, cytochrome c (C), and complex IV, with O2 acting as the terminal electron acceptor. Several drugs including metformin, atovaquone, and arsenic trioxide are used clinically for non-oncologic indications, but emerging data demonstrate their potential use as OXPHOS inhibitors. OXPHOS downregulation is associated with poor clinical outcome across all cancer types and correlates with a gene signature characteristic of invasive and metastatic tumors (11). Despite early promise, it was not beneficial in two randomized, phase III trials in combination with chemotherapy, so is no longer being developed clinically (5). Therefore, examples are provided of tumor types in which high OXPHOS gene expression correlates with high OXPHOS protein levels, as determined by IHC or proteomics, and high OXPHOS activity, as determined by metabolomics, oxygen consumption, or sensitivity to well-characterized OXPHOS inhibitors. For example, NSCLC tumors with oncogenic Kras and loss of the LKB1 tumor suppressor are selectively sensitive to the complex I inhibitor phenformin (35). Oxidative Phosphorylation as an Emerging Target in Cancer Therapy, Targeting mitochondria metabolism for cancer therapy, Metformin: a novel biological modifier of tumor response to radiation therapy, Cancer metabolism: a therapeutic perspective. Reactive species could modulate the express… Molecular pathways: BRAF induces bioenergetic adaptation by attenuating oxidative phosphorylation. Normal cells mostly rely upon the process of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation to produce energy whereas cancer cells have developed an altered metabolism that allows them to sustain higher proliferation rates. We highlight novel applications of OXPHOS inhibitors with a suitable therapeutic index to target cancer cell metabolism. Tumors with a high reliance on OXPHOS that are able to switch to glycolysis for ATP production may still be susceptible to OXPHOS inhibition, but this remains to be determined experimentally. This hybrid phenotype can facilitate metabolic plasticity of cancer cells more specifically in metastasis and therapy-resistance. It also reduces hypoxia in spheroids and xenografted tumors, with a corresponding improvement in radiation sensitivity (40, 42). NOTE: We request your email address only to inform the recipient that it was you who recommended this article, and that it is not junk mail. Treatment with metformin or the complex V inhibitor oligomycin retards growth of these cells in vitro and causes growth delay of PDAC-215 and PDAC-A6L xenografts (29). NO delivered by these methods causes a decrease in tumor hypoxia and corresponding enhancement of radiation response, an effect that may be mediated both by improved blood flow and OXPHOS inhibition (39). NADH, FADH2 and succinate act as electron donors. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0040690. In … 2020 Oct;42(10):1010428320965284. doi: 10.1177/1010428320965284. Normal cells mostly rely upon the process of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation to produce energy whereas cancer cells have developed an altered metabolism that allows them to sustain higher proliferation rates. Several recent reviews have highlighted mitochondrial metabolism as a target for anticancer therapy, with a particular focus on metformin as an OXPHOS inhibitor (1, 3–9). Citation: Lu C-L, Qin L, Liu H-C, Candas D, Fan M, Li JJ (2015) Tumor Cells Switch to Mitochondrial Oxidative Phosphorylation under Radiation via mTOR-Mediated Hexokinase II Inhibition - A Warburg-Reversing Effect. Repurposing of FDA-approved drugs has revealed that many well-tolerated, widely prescribed drugs such as metformin, arsenic trioxide, and atovaquone act as OXPHOS inhibitors, and have potential as anticancer therapeutics. It reduces hypoxia in Lewis lung carcinoma (LLC) and transplantable mouse liver (TLT) tumors, leading to an improvement in radiation response (41). When OXPHOS is active, there is a high proton gradient across the membrane, and protons flow from the inner intermembrane space back into the mitochondrial matrix through complex V, ATP synthase, driving the synthesis of ATP. Heterogeneity is profoundly affected by increasing levels of ROS. However, recent studies have shown that OXPHOS can be also upregulated in certain cancers, including leukemias, lymphomas, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, high OXPHOS subtype melanoma, … Therapy-resistant chronic myeloid leukemia stem cells also have upregulated OXPHOS, as determined by metabolomics and functional assays (31). 2021 Jan 21. doi: 10.1038/s41416-020-01252-2. Many subsequent in vivo studies have revealed that metformin inhibits tumor growth in a variety of different models (28, 29, 48, 49). Author information: (1)Institute of Genetics and Microbiology, University of Wroclaw, Przybyszewskiego Street, 51-148 Wroclaw, … Author information: (1)Section of Hematology/Oncology, Department of Medicine, The University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, USA. The characterization of cancer cells with an OXPHOS phenotype and gene mutations driving OXPHOS upregulation is ongoing. Fenofibrate is a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPARα) agonist approved to treat hyperlipidemia but also inhibits complex I in isolated mitochondria and in glioblastoma cell lines, causing a significant growth decrease in an orthotopic U87 intracranial glioblastoma model (67, 68). In summary, the studies of biguanides and other OXPHOS modulators demonstrate that complex I is a particularly attractive target. Several cases have been described in which cancer cells become more dependent upon OXPHOS following treatment with targeted therapies, including inhibition of the protein kinase BRAF in melanomas with an activating mutation in the BRAF gene. The costs of publication of this article were defrayed in part by the payment of page charges. Gillies McKenna1, Leoni A. Kunz ... which has led many to the assumption that oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) is downregulated in all cancers. Oxygen acts as the terminal electron acceptor. Clin Cancer Res. This hybrid phenotype can facilitate metabolic plasticity of cancer cells more specifically in metastasis and therapy-resistance. These radicals are converted into DNA peroxides in the presence of oxygen, which must be physically present within microseconds of the damage, forming more stable intermediates that are more difficult to repair (39). However, recent studies have shown that OXPHOS can be also upregulated in certain cancers, including leukemias, lymphomas, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, high OXPHOS subtype melanoma, and endometrial carcinoma, and that this can occur even in the face of active … The hypothetical effect of OXPHOS inhibition on tumor oxygen tension. Therapeutically viable OXPHOS inhibitors must be efficacious in vitro and in vivo at concentrations that are achievable in the tumors of patients. Recent studies show that tumor cell oxidative metabolism is a barrier to PD-1 immunotherapy and radiotherapy could overcome PD-1 resistance, so it is urgent to determine … Deficient cytoplasmal GSH may cripple the activation of mammalian target of rapamycin-1, NFAT as well as Myc, thereby compromising sufficient energy production and damaging Myc-dependent metabolic reprogramming (Mak et al., 2017). Under OXPHOS inhibition, we hypothesize that OXPHOS activity is greatly reduced throughout the tumor, and that the decreased cellular oxygen consumption lowers the slope of the oxygen gradient from the vessels into the tumor tissue. More specifically, alteration in signal transduction pathways … Here, we describe a near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent dye, IR-26, which preferentially accumulates in the mitochondria of AML cells, … It is important to note that tumors can display metabolic flexibility (5, 7), so a high reliance on OXPHOS does not necessarily confer dependence. We should first examine energy metabolic pathways in cancer cells when considering energy metabolism as a target for cancer therapy in order to obtain good therapeutic results. The authors thank James Coates for helpful discussions. Online ahead of print. Dysregulation of protein methyltransferases in human cancer: An emerging target class for anticancer therapy. However, recent studies have shown that OXPHOS can be also upregulatedincertaincancers,includingleukemias,lymphomas, pancreatic ductal … eCollection 2020. Several studies indicate that OXPHOS may be upregulated in breast cancer and classical Hodgkin lymphoma. OXPHOS inhibitors could therefore be used to target cancer subtypes in which OXPHOS is upregulated and to alleviate therapeutically adverse tumor hypoxia. Energy disruptors: rising stars in anticancer therapy? However, in some cancers, mtDNA is a requirement for tumorigenesis for cancer cells to grow in an anchorage-dependent manner and to mediate resistance to cytotoxic drugs (9, 12). Mathematical modeling suggests that complete inhibition of oxygen consumption is not required for alleviation of tumor hypoxia, and that even a 30% decrease in consumption would abolish severe hypoxia (44, 45).
