Compound class Synthetic organic
A-769662 is a small molecule activator of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). Its chemical structure was originally disclosed by Cool et al. (2006) [1], in which it was used to demonstrate that AMPK activation is a feasible approach for the treatment of the metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. A-769662 activates AMPK both allosterically (as evidenced by its ability to activate a mutant AMPK γ subunit that is resistant to endogenous AMP-induced activation) and by inhibiting dephosphorylation of AMPK on Thr172 [3]. A-769662 is suitable as as experimental tool to understand the physiological roles of AMPK in vitro and in vivo. Use of A-769662 has also confirmed AMPK's role as an autophagy target, whose activation is able to ameliorate neurodegeneration in animal models [4]. AMPK activation induces autophagy in an mTOR-independent manner, so limits the risk of the potentially detrimental effects that mTOR inhibition may have on important cellular pathways in addition to autophagy.
