Reference: Shaw RJ et al.(2004) The tumor suppressor LKB1 kinase directly activates AMP-activated kinase and regulates apoptosis in response to energy stress. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 101: 3329-3335 [PMID: 14985505]

Interaction Information:

Comment The kinase activity of LKB1 immunoprecipitated from cells treated with peroxide or AICAR was not increased compared with that from untreated control cells, as measured both by autophosphotylation and transphpsphorylation or the MBP-AMPK fusion.

Comment Peroxide or AICAR treatment led to activation of AMPK in vivo, which supports the model in which allosteric regulation or the AMPK heterotrimer by AMP-binding allows it to better serve as substrate for the upstream kinase, as opposed to direct regulation of the activity of the AMPK kinase by AMP.
