    Ataxia-Telangiectasia Mutated Modulation of Carbon Metabolism in Cancer.

    Front Oncol 2017 29;7:291. Epub 2017 Nov 29.
    Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology, Penn State College of Medicine, Hershey, PA, United States.
    The ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (ATM) protein kinase has been extensively studied for its role in the DNA damage response and its association with the disease ataxia telangiectasia. There is increasing evidence that ATM also plays an important role in other cellular processes, including carbon metabolism. Carbon metabolism is highly dysregulated in cancer due to the increased need for cellular biomass. A number of recent studies report a non-canonical role for ATM in the regulation of carbon metabolism. This review highlights what is currently known about ATM's regulation of carbon metabolism, the implication of these pathways in cancer, and the development of ATM inhibitors as therapeutic strategies for cancer.

    Oxidized ATM promotes abnormal proliferation of breast CAFs through maintaining intracellular redox homeostasis and activating the PI3K-AKT, MEK-ERK, and Wnt-β-catenin signaling pathways.
    Cell Cycle 2015 ;14(12):1908-24
    a Key Laboratory of Laboratory Medical Diagnostics; Chinese Ministry of Education; Chongqing Medical University ; Chongqing , China.
    Abnormal proliferation is one characteristic of cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs), which play a key role in tumorigenesis and tumor progression. Oxidative stress (OS) is the root cause of CAFs abnormal proliferation. ATM (ataxia-telangiectasia mutated protein kinase), an important redox sensor, is involved in DNA damage response and cellular homeostasis. Read More
    A role for the Tip60 histone acetyltransferase in the acetylation and activation of ATM.
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2005 Sep 2;102(37):13182-7. Epub 2005 Sep 2.
    Department of Radiation Oncology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, 44 Binney Street, Boston, MA 02115, USA.
    The ataxia telangiectasia mutant (ATM) protein kinase regulates the cell's response to DNA damage through the phosphorylation of proteins involved in cell-cycle checkpoints and DNA repair. However, the signal-transduction pathway linking DNA strand breaks to activation of ATM's kinase activity is not clearly defined. Here, we demonstrate that DNA damage induces the rapid acetylation of ATM. Read More
    ATM: the protein encoded by the gene mutated in the radiosensitive syndrome ataxia-telangiectasia.
    Int J Radiat Biol 1999 Oct;75(10):1201-14
    The Queensland Cancer Fund Research Unit, The Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Brisbane, Australia.
    Purpose: To provide an update on the product of the ATM gene mutated in the human genetic disorder ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T).

    Summary: The product of the ATM gene mutated in the human genetic disorder A-T is a 350 kDa protein that plays a central role in the regulation of a number of cellular processes. It is a member of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase superfamily, but is more likely a protein kinase similar to another member of that family, i. Read More
    Ataxia-telangiectasia and the Nijmegen breakage syndrome: related disorders but genes apart.
    Annu Rev Genet 1997 ;31:635-62
    Department of Human Genetics, Sackler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Israel.
    Gene mutations provide valuable clues to cellular metabolism. In humans such insights come mainly from genetic disorders. Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) and Nijmegen breakage syndrome (NBS) are two distinct but closely related, single gene disorders that highlight a complex junction of several signal transduction pathways.
