O-GlcNAcylation is emerging as a critical regulatory post-translational modification, impacting proteins that regulate cell division, apoptosis, metabolism, cell signaling, and transcription. O-GlcNAc also affects biological homeostasis by integrating information coming from the environment, such as nutrient conditions and extracellular stimuli, with cellular response. Aberrant O-GlcNAc modulation has been linked to metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as cancers. While many studies have highlighted the significance of O-GlcNAc in cancer, a specific function for O-GlcNAc during tumorigenesis remains unclear and seems to differ according to cancer type. Herein, we review the impact of altered O-GlcNAcylation in breast, ovarian and uterine cancers.
