The interplay between DNA repair and autophagy in cancer therapy

The paper below clearly shows that sugar promotes radiation resistance in cancer cells by enhancing certain DNA repair capacities in response to DNA damage.  When the say glucose stimulates glycolysis, what they have shon is that it stimulates aerobic glycolysis (Warburg effect), one of the main pathways that cancer cells used to divert from the electron transport system in order to reduce apoptosis drbob
