Molecular markers such as mutation in isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) and codeletion of chromosome arms 1p and 19q (1p/19q codeletion) have highly benefited diagnosis and prognosis in brain gliomas. However, the biological effects of 1p/19q codeletion are still not clear. We report selective accumulation of cystathionine in IDH-mutated, 1p/19q codeleted gliomas observed by edited 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Noninvasive detection of cystathione enables identification of glioma subtypes in vivo and opens up the possibility of investigating nonivasively cancer-specific metabolic pathways.
