In light of recent research illuminating the role of sex-determining region Y (SRY) BOX2 (SOX2) in cancer, the authors of this article sought to evaluate whether SOX2 modulation is correlated with metabolic shift toward oxidative phosphorylation taking place under acidic tumor microenvironment. Their results suggest that SOX2 does promote an oxidative metabolism that correlates with more aggressive and drug resistant tumor phenotypes with enhanced metastatic ability.
