Abstract

AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a serine-threonine kinase that regulates cellular metabolism and has an essential role in activating glucose transport during hypoxia and ischemia. The mechanisms responsible for AMPK stimulation of glucose transport are uncertain, but may involve interaction with other signaling pathways or direct effects on GLUT vesicular trafficking. One potential downstream mediator of AMPK signaling is the nitric oxide pathway. The aim of this study was to examine the extent to which AMPK mediates glucose transport through activation of the nitric oxide (NO)-signaling pathway in isolated heart muscles. Incubation with 1 mM 5-amino-4-imidazole-1-beta-carboxamide ribofuranoside (AICAR) activated AMPK (P
