Nanosecond pulsed electric fields activate AMP-activated protein kinase: implications for calcium-mediated activation of cellular signaling.


Nanosecond pulsed electric fields (nsPEFs) are increasingly being recognized as a potential tool for use in the life sciences. Exposure of human cells to nsPEFs elicits the formation of small membrane pores, intracellular Ca(2+) mobilization, signaling pathway activation, and apoptosis. Here we report the activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) by… (More)
