Abstract

Hydroxylation is a post-translational modification affecting protein stability, activity or interactome. We identified adenylosuccinate lyase (ADSL) as a novel hydroxylation substrate in triple negative breast cancer. Hydroxylation affects ADSL enzymatic activity and, therefore, adenosine levels. Adenosine, in turn, favors the translation of cMYC, triggering its oncogenic downstream cascade.
