Exercise-induced AMPK activity in skeletal muscle: Role in glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftReviewForskningfagfællebedømt

The energy/fuel sensor 5'-AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is viewed as a master regulator of cellular energy balance due to its many roles in glucose, lipid, and protein metabolism. In this review we focus on the regulation of AMPK activity in skeletal muscle and its involvement in glucose metabolism, including glucose transport and glycogen synthesis. In addition, we discuss the plausible interplay between AMPK and insulin signaling regulating these processes.
