Slowing Amino Acid Metabolism Curbs Tumor Growth

By restricting the dietary amino acids serine and glycine, which in turn targeted the serine synthesis enzyme phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase, the team induced tumor cells to produce a toxic lipid that slows cancer progression in mice.
Many more promoter interactions (purple arcs) are captured by the Capture Hi-C method (second track) versus the regular Hi-C method (first track). The interactions from a single promoter (third track) reach numerous other DNA segments
