Beyond energy homeostasis: the expanding role of AMP-activated protein kinase in regulating metabolism

Cell Metab. 2015 Jun 2;21(6):799-804. doi: 10.1016/j.cmet.2015.05.005.


The recent exciting advances in our understanding of the regulation of the energy sensor AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), together with renewed appreciation of its importance in maintaining cellular function, brought together leading scientists at a recent FASEB-sponsored meeting in September 2014. Here, we report some of the highlights of this conference.
