AMPK pathway

AMPK (5’-adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase) is a member of a protein kinase family that extends from plants to mammals and is thought to act as a “fuel gauge”.

The AMPK cascade plays a central role in the regulation of glucose homeostasis, lipid metabolism, mitochondrial biogenesis and protein synthesis, which makes it an attractive therapeutic target.
