Vitamin K2 Prevents Lymphoma in Drosophila

Previous studies have established the anticancer efect of vitamin K2 (VK2). However, its efect onlymphoma induced by UBIAD1/heix mutation in Drosophila remains unknown. Therefore, we aimed to develop an in vivo model of lymphoma for the precise characterization of lymphoma phenotypes. We also aimed to improve the understanding of the mechanisms that underlie the preventative efects ofVK2 on lymphoma. Our results demonstrated that VK2 prevents lymphoma by acting as an electron carrier and by correcting the function and structure of mitochondria by inhibiting mitochondrial reactive oxygen species production mtROS. Our work identifes mitochondria as a key player in cancer therapy strategies.
