Applications

5-Aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide 1-beta-D-ribofuranoside is used as a cell permeable activator of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), a metabolic master regulator that is activated in times of reduced energy availability (high cellular AMP:ATP ratios) and serves to inhibit anabolic processes. In vivo, pharmacologic activation of AMPK with AICAR mimics exercise and triggers insulin-independent glucose uptake by skeletal muscle.

Notes

Store in cool, dry conditions in well sealed containers. Keep container tightly closed.
