ZBTB7A is a transcription factor that regulates all three branches of hematopoietic differentiation while repressing the expression of key glycolytic enzymes and glucose transporters. Here, we propose that ZBTB7A acts as a link between differentiation and metabolism, two interconnected cellular processes. In particular, ZBTB7A can activate or repress metabolic programs necessary for the differentiation of specific cell lineages while controlling key pathways such as Notch signaling. Finally, the dual role of ZBTB7A has implications for the treatment of myeloid malignancies, where the block of differentiation could potentially be overcome by metabolic therapies with low toxicity.
