Amino acid restriction is a promising strategy for cancer treatment; however, adaptive signaling and metabolic reprogramming confer resistance to the approach. In this Perspective, Pathria and Ronai discuss how the identification and co-targeting of signaling pathways underlying the resistance promise to offer durable therapeutic responses to amino acid restriction.
