2011 Cancer Discovery  
ReseaRCh waTCh Major finding: AMPK substrate phosphorylation is required for completion of mitosis and cytokinesis. approach: An ATP analogue-specific AMPKα2 mutant allows in vivo labeling of AMPK substrates. Impact: Adipocytes secrete cytokines to attract tumor cells and provide lipids as an energy source.
