Rabbit anti Human AMPK alpha 1 antibody recognizes 5'-AMP-activated protein kinase catalytic subunit alpha-1, also known as PRKAA1, AMPK1. AMPK is a highly conserved heterotrimeric protein kinase found in all eukaryotes. The heterotrimeric complex exists as multiple isoforms and consists of a catalytic alpha subunit (alpha 1 and alpha 2), which is stabilized by non-catalytic regulatory beta- and gamma- subunits (Yan et al. 2018). AMPK responds to changes in intracellular adenine nucleotide levels, regulating cellular energy balance. AMPK is activated by an increase in AMP/ADP relative to ATP, and leads to an increase in rate of catabolic (ATP-generating) pathways and decreases rate of anabolic (ATP-utilizing) pathways (Carling et al. 2017). This results in maintenance of cellular energy homeostasis under conditions of hypoxia, low glucose levels, oxidative stress. Evidence suggests that AMPK acts as a tumor suppressor and has been suggested as a target for therapy, opposing tumor progression in several cancer types in part by regulating metabolism and inflammation (Li et al. 2015).
