Identification of the Serine Biosynthesis Pathway as a Critical Component of BRAF Inhibitor Resistance of Melanoma, Pancreatic, and Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells

768 views | Nov 08 2018

The novel aspects of this study are the direct identification of serine biosynthesis as a critical mechanism of BRAF V600E inhibitor resistance and the first successful example of using gemcitabine + BRAFis in combination to kill previously drug-resistant cancer cells, creating the translational potential of pretreatment with gemcitabine prior to BRAFi treatment of tumor cells to reverse resistance within the mutational profile and the WT.
