AMPK Activator (mTOR Inhibitor)

A-769662 is a potent and reversible activator of AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase), an energy sensing serine/threonine protein kinase important in cellular metabolism [1].

Through the activation of AMPK, A-769662 inhibits mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), an enzyme in the PI3K/AKT/mTOR intracellular signalling pathway that plays a central role in cell proliferation, growth, and survival [2].

Studies demonstrate that A-769662 inhibits cell proliferation of various cell types [3, 4].

In addition to its role in cell metabolism and proliferation, A-769662 is also considered as an anti-inflammatory agent as it reduces the activation of JNK, a member of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) family that plays an essential role in inflammatory responses [5, 6].
