Ovarian Cancer Cells’ Dependence on Fat Suggests New Therapeutic Target

The enzyme Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase 1A (CPT1A) may control how much fat ovarian cancer cells can burn, suggesting a treatment that limits these cells’ access to CPT1A may starve them of the resources they need to spread.
