Acadesine is an activator that permeates the cell membrane AMP-activatedproteinkinase (AMPK). AMPK is a key protein in metabolic regulation. When the energy supply is insufficient, the ratio of AMP/ATP increases, and AMPK will be activated to inhibit the synthesis of metabolism. AICAR activates AMPK, but does not affect the level of ATP, ADP, and AMP. At the cellular or animal level, AICAR can promote glucose uptake of skeletal muscle non-insulin dependence by activating AMPK. An AICAR induced glucose intake of skeletal muscle cannot be blocked by a PI3K inhibitor.
