Fluctuations in acetyl-coenzyme A (acetyl-CoA) levels have been previously associated with changes in global histone acetylation and gene expression. The study by Lee and colleagues (pp. 497-511) in this issue of Genes & Development demonstrates that acetyl-CoA can promote the up-regulation of cell migration- and adhesion-related genes in glioblastoma by controlling Ca2+-NFAT (nuclear factor of activated T cells) signaling.
