AMP-activated protein kinase response to contractions and treatment with the AMPK activator AICAR in young adult and old skeletal muscle
(East Carolina University, 2009-05-01)
One characteristic of aging skeletal muscle is a decline in mitochondrial function. Activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK)occurs in response to an increased AMP/ATP ratio,which is one potential result of ...
Modulation of IKKβ with AMPK Improves Insulin Sensitivity in Skeletal Muscle
(East Carolina University, 2008-11)
Activation of the insulin receptor substrate (IRS)-1 is necessary for proper transduction of the insulin signal. IRS-1 serine312(human)/307(rodent) phosphorylation, however, results in disruption of this signal and subsequent ...
