Biochem/physiol Actions

A-769662 is a potent, β1 subunit-selective, allosteric drug and metabolite (ADaM) site AMPK activator (α1β1γ1 EC50/Emax = 0.15 μM/1.99 vs. 4.51 μM/2.19 with AMP) that promotes a Thr172 phosphorylation in a β1 carbohydrate binding module (CBM) Ser108 phosphorylation-dependent manner. A769662 synergizes with AMP as well as C2 (AMP mimetic) toward Thr172 dephosphorylated/Ser108 phosphorylated AMPK. A-769662 is widely employed in probing AMPK β1 complexes-mediated cellular signaling in cultures (conc range: 1 μM-1 mM) as well as AMPK-dependent physiological and pathological processes in mice and rats in vivo (dosing range: 1-30 mg/kg i.p.).

Metformin is a first-line therapeutic option for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, even though its underlying mechanisms of action are relatively unclear. Metformin lowers blood glucose levels by inhibiting hepatic glucose production (HGP), an effect originally postulated to be

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is a highly prevalent component of disorders associated with disrupted energy homeostasis. Although dysregulation of the energy sensor AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is viewed as a pathogenic factor in the development of fatty liver its role

Metformin, a hypoglycemic drug used for treatment of type 2 diabetes, regulates inflammatory pathways. By using several models of intestinal inflammation, we examined whether metformin exerts anti-inflammatory effects and investigated the basic mechanism by which metformin blocks pathologic signals. Colitic

A wide variety of agents activate AMPK, but in many cases the mechanisms remain unclear. We generated isogenic cell lines stably expressing AMPK complexes containing AMP-sensitive (wild-type, WT) or AMP-insensitive (R531G) gamma2 variants. Mitochondrial poisons such as oligomycin and dinitrophenol

The AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is an alphabetagamma heterotrimer that plays a pivotal role in regulating cellular and whole-body metabolism. Activation of AMPK reverses many of the metabolic defects associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes, and therefore AMPK is
