The interrelations between the well-known characterized oncogenic effects (genetic and epigenetic), the related metabolic alterations and the metabolic reprogramming have high interest in recent studies of tumorgenesis, tumor progression and therapeutic response. Certain tumor cells could possess various metabolic profi les (even independently from their histological type) based on their metabolic changes. These can be characterized by different nutrient demand and utilization pathways (glycolysis, glutaminolysis, fatty acid oxidation, autophagy etc.) besides the alterations can influence the survival, the proliferation rate, the metastatic behaviour and the microenvironmental changes of certain tumor cells, as well. Targeting certain metabolic phenotypes or irreversible metabolic adaptation changes in different tumor cells could be expected to be effective in future therapeutic treatments.
