ABSTRACT
The article offers information on a common metabolic signature of malignant cells known as heightened lipogenesis. It discusses how newly synthesized fatty acids are quickly incorporated into lipid stores and how they are made available for cellular functions. It also investigates the effect of monoglyceride lipase expression on cancer pathogenicity. It discusses a study made by researchers to determine the lipid networks which are modulated by the increase of free fatty acids.
