Background: The mechanism underlying the activation of AMPK by metformin remains unclear. Results: Metformin promotes the formation of AMPK αβγ heterotrimeric complex. Conclusion: The formation of the AMPK αβγ heterotrimeric complex augments AMPK αβγ phosphorylation by LKB1 and prevents dephosphorylation by protein phosphatase. Significance: Metformin-mediated formation of the AMPK αβγ heterotrimeric complex results in AMPK activation by elevating AMPK phosphorylation at Thr-172. © 2015 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.
