Succinate, an Intermediate in Metabolism, Signal Transduction, ROS, Hypoxia, and Tumorigenesis

Laszlo Tretter et al. Biochim Biophys Acta.

Abstract

Succinate is an important metabolite at the cross-road of several metabolic pathways, also involved in the formation and elimination of reactive oxygen species. However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that its realm extends to epigenetics, tumorigenesis, signal transduction, endo- and paracrine modulation and inflammation. Here we review the pathways encompassing succinate as a metabolite or a signal and how these may interact in normal and pathological conditions.(1).

Keywords: Cancer; HIF1-alpha; Substrate-level phosphorylation; Succinate dehydrogenase; Succinate receptor.
