  • AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), which was activated by an antihyperglycemic drug metformin, has been hypothesized to mediate metabolic adaptations. The purposes of the present study were 1) to confirm whether acute metformin administration induced AMPK phosphorylation and 2) to determine whether chronic metformin treatment increased the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma coactivator-1alpha (PGC-1alpha) protein expression, glycolytic and oxidative enzyme activities, and… CONTINUE READING
