AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is emerging as an important energy-sensing/signaling system in skeletal muscle. This kinase is activated allosterically by 5'-AMP and inhibited allosterically by creatine phosphate. Phosphorylation of AMPK by an upstream kinase, AMPK kinase (also activated allosterically by 5'-AMP), results in activation. It is activated in both rat and human muscle in response to muscle contraction, the extent of activation depending on work rate and muscle glycogen…

AMP-activated protein kinase and muscle glucose uptake.
TLDR
The effects of AMPK on muscle glucose uptake makes this protein a promising pharmacological target for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
ADP is the dominant controller of AMP-activated protein kinase activity dynamics in skeletal muscle during exercise
TLDR
A mathematical model of AMPK signaling dynamics is developed and validated, and global parameter sensitivity analyses with data-informed constraints are applied to predict that AMPK activity dynamics are determined principally by ADP and not AMP, demonstrating its applicability to understanding AMPK pharmacology.
Cellular energy sensing and signaling by AMP-activated protein kinase
AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is an energy sensing/signaling protein that, when activated, increases ATP production by stimulating glucose uptake and fatty acid oxidation while at the same time
ADP is the dominant controller of AMP-activated protein kinase activity dynamics in skeletal muscle during exercise
TLDR
A mathematical model of AMPK signaling dynamics is developed and validated, and global parameter sensitivity analyses with data-informed constraints are applied to predict that AMPK activity dynamics are determined principally by ADP and not AMP, which enhances understanding of AM PK action during exercise and could inform the development of drugs that target AMPK.
Effect of acute activation of 5'-AMP-activated protein kinase on glycogen regulation in isolated rat skeletal muscle.
TLDR
The results suggest that AMPK does not mediate contraction- Stimulated glycogen synthesis or glycogenolysis in skeletal muscle and also that acute AMPK activation leads to an increased glycolytic flux by antagonizing contraction-stimulated glycogens synthesis.
5’ Adenosine Monophosphate-Activated Protein Kinase, Metabolism and Exercise
TLDR
This review discusses the putative roles of AMPK in acute and chronic exercise responses, and suggests avenues for future AMPK research in exercise physiology and biochemistry.
Phosphorylation-activity relationships of AMPK and acetyl-CoA carboxylase in muscle.
TLDR
Data provide the first evidence of a direct link between extent of phosphorylation of these proteins at sites recognized by the antibodies and activity of the enzymes in electrically stimulated muscle and in muscle of rats running on the treadmill.
AMP‐activated protein kinase: role in metabolism and therapeutic implications
TLDR
Evidence that pharmacological activation of AMPK in vivo improves blood glucose homeostasis, cholesterol concentrations and blood pressure in insulin‐resistant rodents, make this enzyme an attractive pharmacological target for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, ischaemic heart disease and other metabolic diseases.
AMP-Activated Protein Kinase Plays an Important Evolutionary Conserved Role in the Regulation of Glucose Metabolism in Fish Skeletal Muscle Cells
TLDR
Evidence is provided, for the first time in non-mammalian vertebrates, suggesting a potentially important role of AMPK in stimulating glucose uptake and utilization in the skeletal muscle of fish.
AMP-activated protein kinase activates transcription of the UCP3 and HKII genes in rat skeletal muscle.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that AMPK signaling is linked to the transcriptional regulation of select metabolic genes in skeletal muscle by a single-leg arterial infusion technique employed in fully conscious rats.

AMPK signaling in contracting human skeletal muscle: acetyl-CoA carboxylase and NO synthase phosphorylation.
TLDR
Observations support the concept that inhibition of ACC is an important component in stimulating fatty acid oxidation in response to exercise and that there is coordinated regulation of nNOSmu to protect the muscle from ischemia/metabolic stress.
AMP-activated protein kinase activity and glucose uptake in rat skeletal muscle.
TLDR
Tetanic contractions of isolated epitrochlearis muscles in vitro significantly increased the activity of both AMPK isoforms in a dose-dependent manner and at a similar rate compared with increases in 3-MG uptake, suggesting the activation of AMPK alpha 2-containing complexes may be more important in regulating exercise-mediated skeletal muscle metabolism in vivo.
Dual regulation of the AMP‐activated protein kinase provides a novel mechanism for the control of creatine kinase in skeletal muscle
TLDR
The novel regulation of AMPK described here provides a mechanism by which energy supply can meet energy demand following the utilization of the immediate energy reserve provided by the creatine kinase–phosphocreatine system.
The AMP-activated protein kinase--fuel gauge of the mammalian cell?
TLDR
The central hypothesis is that the AMP-activated protein kinase cascade appears to be an ancient system which evolved to protect cells against the effects of nutritional or environmental stress, and protects the cell by switching off ATP-consuming pathways and switching on alternative pathways for ATP generation.

TLDR
Increased recruitment of the AMPK signaling system, either by exercise or pharmaceutical activators, may be effective in correcting insulin resistance in patients with forms of impaired glucose tolerance and Type 2 diabetes resulting from defects in the insulin signaling cascade.

TLDR
Results indicate that activation of AMPK in muscle cells stimulates glucose transport by activation of NOS coupled to downstream signaling components, including cyclic GMP.

TLDR
Acute (stimulation of glucose uptake into muscle) and chronic (increase in GLUT4) effects of exercise can be reproduced by injection of this drug, opening the door to the possibility of treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes with AMPK activators.
Activation of AMP-activated protein kinase increases mitochondrial enzymes in skeletal muscle.
TLDR
The results suggest that chronic AMPK activation may mediate the effects of muscle contraction on some, but not all, biochemical adaptations of muscle to endurance exercise training.
