- AICA riboside
Cell-permeable activator of AMP-activated protein kinase. Is taken up into cells by adenosine transporters and phosphorylated by adenosine kinase to the active nucleotide ZMP (5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleoside), which mimics effects of AMP on the AMPK system. Active in vivo and in vitro.

Solubility overviewSoluble in 1 ml water to give specified mM/ml concentration
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
