AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) exhibits a key role as a master regulator of cellular energy homeostasis (1). AMPK exists as a heterotrimeric complex composed of a catalytic alpha subunit and regulatory beta and gamma subunits. Binding of AMP to the gamma subunit allosterically activates the complex. AMPK is activated in response to stresses that deplete cellular ATP (low glucose, hypoxia and ischemia) (2) and via signaling pathways in response to adiponectin, leptin and CAMKKbeta.
