Cancer as a Metabolic Disease Book Review:

The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancer and provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. It expands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is a disease of energy metabolism. However, Warburg did not link his theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory was discredited. This book aims to provide evidence, through case studies, that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease requring metabolic solutions for its management and prevention. Support for this position is derived from critical assessment of current cancer theories. Brain cancer case studies are presented as a proof of principle for metabolic solutions to disease management, but similarities are drawn to other types of cancer, including breast and colon, due to the same cellular mutations that they demonstrate.

The Role of Mitochondrial Metabolism and PGC 1 on Breast Cancer Bioenergetics and Metastasis Book Review:

Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women today. Although many advancements in treatment have been made, breast cancer is still the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in Canadian women- demonstrating the need for a greater understanding of this complex disease. The re-wiring of cellular metabolism represents an important alteration in cancer cells that is needed to support their exponential growth. In addition, each step of cancer progression to metastatic disease presents novel bioenergetic and biosynthetic challenges, requiring metabolic adaptations within the cancer cells. Despite increasing knowledge about cancer progression, the characterization of such metabolic changes is incomplete. Classically, the Warburg effect states that cancer cells adopt an extremely glycolytic phenotype, taking up large amounts of glucose for rapid ATP production. Over the years this has been attributed to dysfunctional mitochondria in cancer cells. More recently however it is understood that mitochondria play vital roles in cancer progression and support various cellular metabolic rearrangements in cancer cells. In this work, we show a novel methodology to study isolated functional mitochondria from cancer cells in order to obtain insights into their intrinsic properties- to ultimately understand their contribution to cancer progression. Using this approach, we investigate and characterize the mode of action of metformin, the most commonly prescribed drug for the treatment of type II diabetes, which is being evaluated for use in cancer treatment. We show that metformin directly targets mitochondria and deregulates cellular bioenergetics and metabolism in cancer cells. Lastly, we investigate PGC-1, a central regulator of cellular and mitochondrial metabolism, and its role in breast cancer progression, metastasis and response to bioenergetic drugs. Overall, we elucidate the role of mitochondrial metabolism on cancer cell progression and metastasis as well as shed light on the effects of metformin on these processes.

Cardiac Energy Metabolism in Health and Disease Book Review:

The heart has a very high energy demand but very little energy reserves. In order to sustain contractile function, the heart has to continually produce a large amount of ATP. The heart utilizes free fatty acids mainly and carbohydrates to some extent as substrates for making energy and any change in this energy supply can seriously compromise cardiac function. It has emerged that alterations in cardiac energy metabolism are a major contributor to the development of a number of different forms of heart disease. It is also now known that optimizing energy metabolism in the heart is a viable and important approach to treating various forms of heart disease. Cardiac Energy Metabolism in Health and Disease describes the research advances that have been made in understanding what controls cardiac energy metabolism at molecular, transcriptional and physiological levels. It also describes how alterations in energy metabolism contribute to the development of heart dysfunction and how optimization of energy metabolism can be used to treat heart disease. The topics covered include a discussion of the effects of myocardial ischemia, diabetes, obesity, hypertrophy, heart failure, and genetic disorders of mitochondrial oxidative metabolism on cardiac energetics. The treatment of heart disease by optimizing energy metabolism is also discussed, which includes increasing overall energy production as well as increasing the efficiency of energy production and switching energy substrate preference of the heart. This book will be a valuable source of information to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and investigators in the field of experimental cardiology as well as biochemists, physiologists, pharmacologists, cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and other health professionals.

The Role of Schwann Cell Mitochondrial Metabolism in Schwann Cell Biology and Axonal Survival Book Review:

Mitochondrial dysfunction has emerged as a common cause of peripheral neuropathies. While the role of neuronal and axonal mitochondria in peripheral nerve disease is well appreciated, whether Schwann cell (SC) mitochondrial deficits contribute to peripheral neuropathies is unclear. Greater insight into the biology and pathology of SC mitochondrial metabolism could be relevant to the treatment of peripheral neuropathies, particularly because SCs critically support axonal stability and function as well as promote peripheral nerve regeneration. The present thesis investigates the contribution of SC mitochondrial deficits to disease progression in peripheral neuropathies as well as the gene regulatory network that drives the SC regenerative response after injury and in disease states. We describe the generation and characterization of the first mouse model useful in directly interrogating the contribution of SC mitochondrial dysfunction to peripheral neuropathy. These mice (Tfam-SCKOs) were produced through the tissue-specific deletion of the mitochondrial transcription factor A gene (Tfam), which is required for mtDNA transcription and replication. Interestingly, induction of SC-specific mitochondrial dysfunction did not affect SC survival; instead, these deficits resulted in a severe, progressive peripheral neuropathy characterized by extensive axonal degeneration that recapitulated critical features of human neuropathy. Mechanistically, we demonstrated that SC mitochondrial dysfunction activates a maladaptive integrated stress response and causes a shift in lipid metabolism away from new lipid biosynthesis towards increased lipid oxidation. These alterations in lipid metabolism caused the early depletion of key myelin lipid components as well as a dramatic accumulation of acylcarnitine lipid intermediates. Importantly, release of acylcarnitines from SCs was toxic to axons and induced their degeneration. Our results show that normal mitochondrial function in SCs is essential for maintenance of axonal survival and normal peripheral nerve function, suggesting that SC mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to human peripheral neuropathies. Moreover, our work identifies alterations in SC lipid metabolism and the accumulation of toxic lipid intermediates as novel mechanisms driving some of the pathology in peripheral neuropathies associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. Tfam-SCKO mice showed a severe deficiency in their ability to remyelinate peripheral nerve axons after injury. To gain insight into the highly orchestrated process of SC-mediated support of axonal regeneration, we also investigated the transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene regulatory program that drives the SC regenerative response. We profiled the expression of SC microRNAs (miRNAs) after peripheral nerve lesions as well as characterized the injury response of SCs with disrupted miRNA processing and showed that SC miRNAs modulated the injury response largely by targeting positive regulators of SC dedifferentiation/proliferation. SC miRNAs cooperated with transcriptional regulators to promote rapid and robust transitions between the distinct differentiation states necessary to support nerve regeneration. Moreover, we identified miR-34a and miR-140 as regulators of SC proliferation and myelination. We then used a novel computational approach to infer the gene regulatory network involved in this SC injury response and gain insight on cooperative regulation of this process by transcription factors and miRNAs. Together, the results described in the present thesis represent a significant increase in our understanding of how mitochondrial abnormalities specifically in SCs contribute to clinical impairment in patients with peripheral neuropathy. Moreover, the mechanistic characterization of lipid metabolism abnormalities in SCs following mitochondrial dysfunction elucidates potentially important therapeutic targets. Finally, our analysis of the transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene regulatory network involved in the SC regenerative response also provides valuable insight that could be harnessed to help restore normal nerve function in patients with peripheral neuropathy.

Mitochondria and Their Role in Cardiovascular Disease Book Review:

Over the past two decades, due to dramatic advances in molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and genetics, our view on mitochondria as a relatively static cellular powerhouse has changed radically. We now know that these organelles play a critical role in the normal and in the damaged heart. Written by Dr. José Marín-García, Director of the Molecular Cardiology and Neuromuscular Institute, Mitochondria and Their Role in Cardiovascular Disease brings readers up- to-date on the many significant advances in the field of mitochondrial cardiovascular medicine. The book begins with a general introduction to mitochondria, followed by laboratory methods to study the structure and function of the organelle, regulation of replication and biogenesis, and the mechanisms and functional consequences of mitophagia and mitochondrial dynamics. Subsequent chapters deal with mitochondrial oxidative stress and the role that the organelle plays in cell signaling and cell death. Discussions will be undertaken on the biochemistry of mitochondrial cell signaling, including the nature of the proteins engaged in these processes, many of them only recently discovered. Later chapters examine the role of mitochondria and mitochondrial abnormalities in cardiovascular diseases, including their diagnosis, therapeutic options currently available, animal models of mitochondrial disease, and new frontiers in mitochondria cardiovascular medicine, including areas of research that are relatively new or developing, such as proteomics, next generation sequencing, and systems biology.
