Targeting tumor phenotypic plasticity and metabolic remodeling in adaptive cross-drug tolerance
Metastable phenotypic state transitions in cancer cells can lead to the development of transient adaptive resistance or tolerance to chemotherapy. Here, we report that the acquisition of a phenotype marked by increased abundance of CD44 (CD44Hi) by breast cancer cells as a tolerance response to routinely used cytotoxic drugs, such as taxanes, activated a metabolic switch that conferred tolerance against unrelated standard-of-care chemotherapeutic agents, such as anthracyclines. We characterized the sequence of molecular events that connected the induced CD44Hi phenotype to increased activity of both the glycolytic and oxid...
