Lipogenesis in Prostate Cancer

|Title:||Lipogenesis in Prostate Cancer|
This image shows increased lipogenesis (formation of fatty acids, in red) in prostate cancer cells. Lipids act as important energy storage units during the spread of cancer. Therapies that disrupt lipogenesis or inhibit oncoproteins that enhance fatty acid biosynthesis could potentially block tumor metastasis. Nucleus of the cell is stained blue.
