In this issue, Fan et al. (2016) show that oncogenic tyrosine kinases can promote glycolysis by phosphorylating and stabilizing the tetrameric form of mitochondrial acetyl-coA acetyltransferase 1 (ACAT1). The authors further identify a small molecule ACAT1 inhibitor that displays anti-cancer effects.
