Characterization of the role of the AMP-activated protein kinase in the stimulation of glucose transport in skeletal muscle cells.

Abstract

Stimulation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) in skeletal muscle has been correlated with an increase in glucose transport. Here, we demonstrate that adenoviral-mediated expression of a constitutively active mutant of AMPK alpha leads to activation of glucose transport in a skeletal-muscle cell line, similar to that seen following treatment with 5… (More)
