AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) acts as a cellular energy sensor, being activated during states of low energy charge. Hypothalamic AMPK activity is altered by hormonal and metabolic signals and mediates the feeding response. To determine the effect of diabetes on hypothalamic AMPK activity, we assayed this activity in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Compared with control rats, STZ-induced diabetic rats had significant hyperphagia and weight loss. Hypothalamic AMPKdoi:10.2337/diabetes.54.1.63 pmid:15616011 fatcat:pop7g7ii3vddfdckwbnfb7txlq
