Glutaminolysis is the double de-amination of glutamine to produce alpha-ketoglutarate, a process upregulated in cancer cells. Our investigations showed that glutaminolysis activates mTORC1 and cell growth through the activation of prolyl hydroxylases. This results suggest a mechanism to explain glutamine addiction in cancer cells beyond the energetic demand, namely that glutamine sustains cell growth via the activation of mTORC1.
