    • Acadesine
    • AICA riboside
  • 生理活性の詳細

    Cell-permeable activator of AMP-activated protein kinase. Is taken up into cells by adenosine transporters and phosphorylated by adenosine kinase to the active nucleotide ZMP (5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleoside), which mimics effects of AMP on the AMPK system. Active in vivo and in vitro.

    Also available in simple stock solutions (ab146713) - add 1 ml of water to get an exact, ready-to-use concentration.

  • ab39400 staining AMPK alpha 1 (phospho S496) in HepG2 cells treated with AICAR (ab120358), by ICC/IF. Increase in AMPK alpha 1 (phospho S496) expression correlates with increased concentration of AICAR, as described in literature.
    The cells were incubated at 37°C for 1h in media containing different concentrations of ab120358 (AICAR) in DMSO, fixed with 4% formaldehyde for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with PBS containing 10% goat serum, 0.3 M glycine, 1% BSA and 0.1% tween for 2h at room temperature. Staining of the treated cells with ab39400 (5 µg/ml) was performed overnight at 4°C in PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.1% tween. A DyLight 488 goat anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody (ab96899) at 1/250 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI and are shown in blue.
  • T24 (transitional cell carcinoma) and UMUC-3 cells were pre-incubated with G9a activator AICAR (1mM, ab120358) for 4 h and then treated with BIX-01294 (1.5 μM) for 24h. The levels of p-AMPKα, p-mTOR and LC-3 I/II was examined.
