Background: Glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase 1 (GOT1) catalyzes the interconversion of aspartate and oxaloacetate (1). The increased transamination primarily catalyzed by GOT1 leads to elevated levels of 2-hydroxyglutarate, which promotes methylation of the Foxp3 gene locus, inhibits Foxp3 expression and activates T helper 17 (TH17) cell differentiation (2). In addition, GOT1 is critical to the survival of cells with electron transport chain inhibition by generating aspartate, a metabolite determining the proliferation of these cells (3-4). Studies also show that GOT1 plays a key role in the noncanonical glutamine pathway that supports liver tumorigenesis (5).

Background: Malate dehydrogenase (MDH) is a key enzyme in the tricarboxylic acid cycle and malate/aspartate shuttle (1,2). MDH is widely expressed in organisms from most bacteria to all eukaryotes (2). The cytoplasmic MDH isoenzyme (cMDH or MDH1) primarily reduces oxaloacetate to malate in the malate/aspartate shuttle (1-3). The major function of the mitochondrial MDH isoenzyme (mMDH or MDH2) is to oxidize malate to oxaloacetate in the tricarboxylic acid cycle (1,2).

Background: Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase 1 (PCK1, PEPCK1 or PEPCK-C) is a cytosolic enzyme responsible for the conversion of oxaloacetate to phosphoenolpyruvate (1). PCK1 is involved in controlling the rate-limiting step of gluconeogenesis in the liver, which generates glucose from non-carbohydrate substrates such as lactate and glycerol (2). The deacetylase SirT1 stimulates transcription of PCK1 and glucose-6-phosphatase to activate gluconeogenesis (3). Depending on nutritional state, Stat3 can inhibit PCK1 and glucose-6-phosphatase expression and suppress gluconeogenesis (4). Relatively high glucose concentration can result in acetylation of PCK1 by P300 acetyltransferase, promoting an interaction between PCK1 and the E3 ligase UBR5 that leads to the PCK1 destabilization (5).
