About this Research Topic
More and more evidence has pointed out that the change in the tumor microenvironment is a key factor driving tumor metabolic reprogramming. However, the specific relationship between tumor metabolic reprogramming and tumor microenvironment remains unclear. Indeed, emerging evidence indicates that cancer cells are able to suppress the anti-tumor immune response by competing for and depleting essential nutrients or otherwise reducing the metabolic fitness of tumor-infiltrating immune cells. The actual process of how metabolic reprogramming and cancer immune response affect each other has not been understood.
This Research Topic will cover all malignant tumors, including gastric cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, melanoma, pancreatic cancer, liver cancer, etc. This Research Topic is also interested in the development of gastrointestinal tumors and the key molecules and regulatory networks in the tumor microenvironment based on multi-omics characteristics. We welcome, original research, reviews, and mini-reviews.
Manuscripts consisting solely of bioinformatics or computational analysis of public genomic or transcriptomic databases which are not accompanied by robust and relevant validation (clinical cohort or biological validation in vitro or in vivo) are out of scope for this topic.
Keywords: Cancer, Tumor Microenvironment, Metabolic Reprogramming, Metabolic characteristics, Immune response
