Interaction Information:

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.
